There are few foods that come close to falafel's first bite: the crisp-fried exterior gives way to a creamy center of seasoned mashed beans, garlic, and parsley. Originating in the Middle East, but now common worldwide, these legume-based patties can be customized to take on the flavor of any place. Whether you are looking to be transported to an exotic location or just enjoy something different at home - the Authentic Foods Falafel Mix is a must try. 
 
The Authentic Foods Falafel Mix is made from the Authentic Foods Garfava Flour and a combination of savory seasonings and herbs. Feel free to add your own seasonings and enjoy falafel in in pita sandwiches, salads or alone. In addition to falafels, you can use this mix to create savory breadings for fish, chicken or vegeables;  baked veggie burgers; and vegetable pancakes. Try using tahini sauce, tzatziki sauce and hummus to add a little something special to your next dish.
