Other than the falafel mix, the rest of my ingredients included – a big bag of spinach, 1 cucumber, some garlic, plain non-fat yogurt, lemon juice and some pita pockets.
I mixed the falafel mix with some water and it was all set!
Next I had to form little 1’ balls from the mix.
Then I had to brown the balls in a frying pan.
Once they were all browned and crispy, they were ready to go!
While the balls were browning away, I made the cucumber yogurt dipping sauce. It was super easy. I just combined the non-fat plain yogurt with a half of a cucumber cut up into small bits. I also added 1 garlic clove, some lemon juice and some pepper. This sauce is amazing. I think it would make a great dressing too! I am loving it!
Once everything was ready for eating, I set the table up pretty.
Falafel balls were crunchy and glorious.
I also chopped up some onion and peppers to add to the pita.
I also added some spinach for stuffing in the pita too.
My pita pocket was stuffed full of deliciousness.
The sauce really made a huge difference in the flavor. It was so light, refreshing and cucumber-y! I loved it.
I have some leftover falafel balls to have for lunch this week, so I am pumped about that. This was a super delicious meal!
Have you ever had falafel? Do you eat them any other ways than in a pita? Let me know if you have any other sauce recommendations too!
