We used to get the most amazing falafel in Jersey City, when we worked in NYC. It was a weekly thing for us. Falafel is sometimes pretty hard to find, so we like to make our own. Sometimes we fry them, but this time we enjoyed freshly baked falafel on a bed of spinach with tomato, cucumber and avocado tahini. Enjoy our Baked Falafel Recipe below!
