|Falafelogs with Cucumber Relish from Going Vegan (page 108)|
Am I the only one who thinks falafels are the WRONG shape to put in a pita? Screw tradition and make your falafels into wieners. I mean, Oktoberfest, am I right? This recipe is packed full of flavor, is soy free, nut free, and has no added oil or sugar. If that's your jam, cool! If not, trust me, this recipe is still yummers. Come on guys, you think this girl was going to write an oil free, sugar free recipe that didn't pass the Joni-loves-to-add-Earth-Balance-or-Vegenaise-to-everything test?
Today's recipe is from the brand spankin' new Going Vegan: The Complete Guide to Making a Healthy Transition to a Plant-Based Lifestyle. This book just came out in August, so I really should be pushing it harder than I have been. So, try this recipe, and any of the others that have been posted here on the blog, then head on over to your favorite bookseller and pick one up for a friend who has been thinking about making the switch. Or give one to your family member that always asks you where you get your protein. Or to you best friend's brother who always makes jokes about how your tofu sandwich would be better with a few slices of bacon added to it. (If he reads the story of Sophie the pig who lives at farm sanctuary and still wants bacon, then he really is heartless!) Answers to all of those questions and more, plus recipes for those who want to cure what ails them through food, and those who just want to stop killing and torturing other living beings all for the sake of a tasty meal. Thanks. I owe ya one.
