Baked Falafel Bowl is delicious, filling and healthy meal. Instead of deep frying falafel, I bake them and serve it with salad ingredients, hummus, tzatziki and baked pita chips.

PREPARE THE PITA CHIPS:

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.

  • Take the tray out of the oven.

PREPARATION OF BAKED PITA BOWLS

  • You can prepare the baked falafel before hand. Check out the above video for baked falafel recipe.
  • Chop, dice or slice the onion, avocado, tomato, cucumber, radish, bell pepper.
  • Peel and grate the carrot. Can cut them into thin sticks if you want to. I find grating them so much quicker.
  • Wash and pat dry salad greens.
  • Start by arranging the salad greens at the bottom of the bowls.
  • Add in sections the tomato, avocado, radish, cucumber, onion, bell pepper.
  • Arrange baked falafel on the side. Can add 3-4 for each bowl.
  • Arrange the baked pita chips on the side.
  • Top with hummus and tzatziki or tahini.
  • Serve with a slice of lemon.
  • Can sprinkle some salt and pepper or serve that on the side.
  • Serve some extra hummus and tzatziki or tahini on the side.

Notes

  • Can use ready made or deep fried falafel for this recipe.
  • Instead of pita bread, serve with some rice, quinoa, couscous or any other cooked grain of your choice.
  • Add salad ingredients of your choice. Sometimes I add boiled beetroot, cooked fave beans, chickpeas, sauteed mushrooms, etc.
  • Add salad greens of your choice. Can be mixed, arugula, lettuce, spinach, etc.
