Pistachio falafel

A plate of brown falafel balls on flatbread and red yellow capsicums, a plate of sliced red onions, tomatoes, flatbread around it.
We love these nutty vegan falafel. Use pistachio nuts and fresh herbs for delicious greens. Serve the falafel in a sharing platter or serve in pitas with fresh vegetables for a healthy and tasty meal!
