Falafel Salad

Via Orchard Street Kitchen

Vegan-friendly, gluten-free by default, and packed in protein, falafels are really a meal prep life-saver. Shape them into different sizes for multi-purpose; vegan burgers, wraps, pita pockets, or bite-size snacks.

Hot tip: freeze your homemade falafels for quick last-minute meals! Switch up this classic by changing the batter or adding fancy dressings like a maple-tahini dressing.

Spring roll in a salad! Vibrant fresh flavors, mango, mint on crisp iceberg lettuce, that’s definitely better than take out!
