The story goes that Falafel, despite its strong connection with Israel, actually originates from Egypt, and was originally made from Faba beans. Its roots can be traced right back to the Christian of Egypt who were forbidden from eating meat during certain holidays and came up with a falafel-like alternative. This traditional recipe is full of flavor and texture. Serve it with Tatziki sauce and use it as an appetizer or in Pita bread with our Asian slaw
This was a hit at our Saturday cooking class. All the young chefs enjoyed chopping all the veggies that this recipe calls for. At home, have your little ones help you by using a safe knife. In our school we use Curious Chef brand. Even though this may not be the most kid friendly dish, they all finished their plate.
