Quinoa Falafel With Parsley & Cilantro #SundaySupper


quinoa falafels

Quinoa falafel! Chickpea and quinoa mixed with some fresh herbs make a crisp healthy snack. I love falafel, so when my Sunday Supper team decided to do a “Middle Eastern “theme I made my quinoa falafel. Super easy to make this flavor filled patty is crunchy and packed with fiber. The addition of quinoa increases the protein and improves the texture. I added some fresh parsley, cilantro  and the quinoa falafels were perfect!
