Bento Box lunch
If you still think falafel is outdated and something you instantly regret you are definitely missing out.
Imagine combining the familiar crunchy texture of this all-time classic with a wonderful fresh and crispy salad. Sounds good? It is!
This falafel salad is not only vegan, it is also easy to make, requires just a few ingredients and is perfect for those that enjoy a healthy meal on the go but don’t have a lot of time on their hands.
The variation possibilities are endless. We love to garnish this salad box with a vegan tzatziki sauce, but exchange tzatziki with beet hummus and it will completely change your dish!
Keep experimenting and this falafel dish will leave you nothing but satisfied.
