Easy homemade falafel recipe (Vegan) ๐Ÿฅ—

Falafel sandwich in a basket with sauce on the side

After spending time in the Middle East and enjoying street food falafel wraps, I had to learn how to make my own homemade falafel. But I am not calling this a traditional falafel recipe, but it was developed after reading many traditional recipes. My version is made with only dry chickpeas. In some places they use fava beans or a mixture of chickpeas and fava beans. Since it’s easier for most people to find chickpeas, and I want this to be an easy falafel recipe, I went with just chickpeas. This may not be the world’s best falafel, but I really like it, and it’s gout-friendly and accidentally vegan.

Beyond Meat bibimbap recipe ๐Ÿฅข

Bibimbap (vegetables, rice and beyond beef) in a bowl

Bibimbap is a great way to use up leftover banchan (Korean side dishes). Or a quick meal after making a bunch of banchan for the week. This version will use some seasoned spinach banchan (Sigeumchi-namul) in my last recipe and some that we will make for the dish. Gosari ๊ณ ์‚ฌ๋ฆฌ is also really good in bibimbap.

No veggie dish is mandatory; it’s really up to you what to put. The combinations are endless. Have fun and experiment.
