Have a Falafel Ball with Trader Joe’s

    Trader Joe’s has introduced new on-trend Falafel Mix. The Mix is a traditional Mediterranean recipe of ground fava beans, chickpeas and spices that’s chock full of flavor, and capable of creating fried (or baked) Falafel. Fragrant cumin and coriander and savory garlic and onion permeate the coarse dough, which bakes to an aromatically rich, golden brown.

    This handy Mix takes some of the work out of making falafel at home while yielding restaurant-quality results—and it’s vegan, gluten-free and kosher (pareve).

    TJ’s customers can serve the finished fritters in a pita or atop a bed of crisp, chopped romaine, with fresh herbs and a generous drizzle of tahini. Or put together a marvelous mezze, surrounding your falafel with a moat of TJ’s Tzatziki, Mediterranean Hummus, Cauliflower Tabbouleh, Dolmas, and warmed flatbread.

    16-ounce boxes of Trader Joe’s Falafel Mix are available for $2.99.
