Probiotic 4 Ingredient Beet Falafel
4 Ingredient Falafel
I always think of falafel as a delicacy, a delicious plant protein alternative that I’d never be able to master. Until I was craving it the other day and decided I should give it a try
Falafel is a flavorful Mediterranean dish that is typically made with chickpeas. This falafel recipe, however, puts a spin on traditional recipes by using soaked sunflower seeds instead of chickpeas. On top of that, this recipe features fermented beet kraut from Cleveland Kraut.
Because this recipe is raw and uses raw unpasteurized fermented kraut, it provides all of the amazing health benefits of fermented foods.
Health benefits such as:
◊ Boosted Immunity
◊ Increased nutrient bioavailability
◊ Improved gut health
◊ Easier digestion
Falafel is often served with hummus or tahini dressing of some sort. You can easily mix a tahini dressing together by combining 1 part tahini to 1 part lemon juice (if you want a runnier dressing, try 1 part tahini to 2-3 parts lemon juice).
My favorite way to enjoy falafel is by using them to top my buddha bowls (as pictured) but they also make for a perfect snack!
