Greek falafel pitas is a tasty, yet healthy bite for this summer. If… you are reasonable on the feta cheese, of course… I love to make meals with a bunch of veggies precut on the table, a creamy healthy dip and pitas, or fajitas bread and let people chose for themselves their fillings. Pita breads have a tendency to dry quite fast, resulting impossible to open them up to fill them, if this happen to you, simply add a little wet and clean kitchen towel over it without it touching the bread directly, let it work it’s magic 30-40 minutes, then they will open up again.

As sidekicks;  avocados, goat cheese, spinach and tomatoes are fantastic. Those red patties are not…

This is an healthy oven baked falafel recipe. Lately, I’ve been trying to eat more vegetarian due to all those recent studies that have come out about how bad meat is for you and the environment. But sadly… the truth is… I could not live without meat, so instead I simply compromise. I try to eat meat no more than twice a week. Maybe some day I’ll have enough good vegetarian recipes to get to only 1 meat day per week. So here is one of those Veggie recipes. Since those little chickpeas balls are simply a great veggie protein source, they keep me strong for long. This Arab meal is usually fried, but since I’m on an eternal diet… Let’s make it in the oven. I usually use chickpeas from the jar, which happens to be of great quality in Spain (where I currently live). However, the recipe is even better with…
