If my posts were written in the order of my affection for particular foods, then this post would be long overdue. Since becoming vegan, falafel has become my favorite food. Don't get me wrong; I have always enjoyed falafel, but I was inclined to mix it up with grilled chicken or lamb, spanakopita, or a gyro.

Falafel was only one of the many kinds of Mediterranean food I enjoyed. But, since embracing a plant-based diet, the falafel has been elevated to a new status. I think this is because the falafel, more than other available foods, does not seem to be lacking for its vegan-ness.

When attempting to find vegan options in restaurants, I frequently feel alienated and high-maintenance. Ordering nachos at my local Baja Fresh always throws the employees for a loop: “No meat, no cheese, no sour cream, no guacamole, thank you very much!” I usually end up with a plate of chips, and beans if I'm lucky. But, the falafel is already vegan! And so is hummus! And pita bread! Hooray!

So, falafel has become its own food group in my eating life, and as such, I figured I should learn how to make it myself. Of course, falafel aren't a meal just in themselves, so I serve mine with homemade hummus, whole wheat pita bread, and tabbouleh salad.
