I just stumbled upon this photo on our tumblr feed and got excited to discuss falafel. Seriously though, who doesn’t love falafel? This recipe is from figgy & sprout’s blog. They are baked to perfection with pistachio’s & herbs & are gluten free to top it off! I’ve attempted to make it a few times but I wasn’t too successful, unfortunately. Last night, i have to say I had one of my worst falafel experiences… it was dry and crumbly! Quite upsetting! To make up for it, I had to go to my favorite spot around a few blocks over (I don’t know why i didn’t go there to begin!). It’s called the green panther located in the heart of Montreal’s hipster community in the mile end. Their traditional falafel wrap makes my mouth water. It comes with 5 falafels, cabbage, carrots, pickles, sauekraut, sprouts & tahini : the essentials!
Whether you’re crunching on your falafel sandwich or staring at the many fixies passing you by, it’s a fun place to check out , and do a little people watching at the same time : ) I’m going to attempt this recipe for our next pot luck next week! Wish me luck!
