What is Falafel?

by Dani Wright 08 Dec 2019
What is Falafel? - 13 Seeds Hemp Farm
Falafels are a Middle Eastern dish of spiced mashed chickpeas or other pulses formed into balls or fritters and deep-fried, usually eaten with or in pitta bread. Their origins are generally believed to date back to Egypt.

How do you eat falafels?


Falafels are usually eaten in pitta breads with condiments such as tomatoes, cucumbers and onions, with a yoghurt or hummus sauce. They can also be used as a side to salads instead of a meat-based protein, in burgers with mashed avocado, or even as an alternative pizza base.

Are falafels healthy?


A fried food that is good for us, at last! Falafels are considered a healthy treat because they are made with chickpeas, considered a superfood. The little legume is packed with protein, fibre, calcium, iron, vitamin C, zinc, copper, manganese, and more. Our 13 Seeds Falafel mixes take it one step further, with the addition of another superfood: hemp.

Terry and Gemma's falafel tip for families: "If our children were keen on meat, we would mix half the hemp falafel with beef in burger patties to increase the nutritional content of their meal."
