New Organic Greek food item spotted at Costco Organic Falafel by Hannah Foods! I added these to my Greek Brunch Board along with the Organic Tzatziki and organic Sabra Hummus and Chicken Skewers this past weekend on the boho Sunday brunch menu (check out the deco. Falafel vegetarian patties are gluten free, microwaveable, fully cooked and are a great source of iron.
Made using an authentic mediterranean recipe, Hannah Foods Organic Falafel Vegetarian Patties at Costco are also freezer friendly, so if you can’t eat them all, you can toss them into your freezer.
I can still remember the first time I had falafel, it was in Georgetown in 1999. I was in college and we’d be out at the Tombs and went to a little Greek place for a late snack. I couldn’t believe how delicious it was and how I’d never had it! And it’s still a favorite!
What is Falafel?
Falafel is a popular traditional Middle Eastern deep-fried ball shaped food made with coarsely ground chickpeas, fava beans or both as well as a wide range of aromatics and spices. The mixture is then shaped into round balls, which are then deep fried. It’s often served with a side of fresh garden salad, in a pita bread pocket sandwich, as a side dish with a meal or as an appetizer with a dip of choice. Falafel is the National Dish of Israel.
Falafel Serving Suggestions:
Classic Falafel & Salad: As pictured above, the classic way to serve falafel is with Greek Salad.
Falafel & Dips: Everyone loves Greek sauces…hummus, tzatziki, baba ganoush, etc. so we often serve these with Falafel and then also some cucumber and pita bread for dipping!
Pita Pocket Sandwich: Falafel are a great alternative to meat in a Greek Pita sandwich! Open up half a pita pocket, slice your falafel, and add hummus, shredded lettuce, feta cheese and tomato (can swap hummus for tzatziki or add both if you’re me!)
