The most common way to eat falafel is in sandwich form. Pop 'em into a pita with veggies (cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, lettuce), and a sauce of choice (tzatziki sauce, tahini sauce, or hummus).In addition to the classic way, you can enjoy your air fryer falafel on a bed of greens with other veggies and dressing of choice. Falafel is typically in meatball shape but instead of the ball form, feel free to shape them into patties (like I did for this recipe) and put this vegetarian protein and micronutrient-packed patty onto a burger bun or lettuce wrap.Another option is to serve your falafel with this Fresh & Easy Quinoa Tabbouleh. So delicious!
