Rainbow Falafel Balls
(Published: )
Falafels may not seem like something you need to be making at home, but these delicious little balls will find there way into everything. Flatten them and top with a poached egg for a twist on the benny, throw a handful in a salad, or go traditional and serve in a pita. We've amped up the flavour, nutrition, and cuteness by mixing in beet juice, turmeric, or spinach to make this rainbow version.
