Whatever floats your boat...


One box of falafel mix ( I used Near East)

1/3 cup ground sunflower kernels (use food processor)

1 red pepper sliced

1 green pepper sliced

1 small - medium onion sliced

1 ripe avocado peeled, pitted and chopped into chunks

1/3-1/2 cup cooking oil

1 tbsp cooking oil

3 tbsp water

1 tbsp lime juice

1/4 tsp cumin

1/4 tsp cilantro 2x


salt and pepper to taste

salsa ~ optional

Follow the directions to the falafel mix adding the sunflower kernels and 1/4 tsp cilantro to the mixture.  Make into patties as directed and place aside.

Sautee the peppers and onions with 1 tbsp oil until tender.  While sautéing, take the avocado, 1/4 tsp cilantro, cumin, lime juice and water and place in food processor.  Blend until creamy smooth.

Heat oil in pan and cook falafel patties for 4 minutes on each side until  golden brown and crispy.  Heat tortillas according to package.

Spread 2-3 tbsp avocado mixture on tortilla, add the falafel followed by the onions and peppers, salt & pepper to taste and add salsa if desired.

Makes four servings.

They look tasty, but so does Vegan jerky made from prickly pear cactus.   There is a reason I don't see people chewing the cactus around here besides the thorns :-P

Great idea, never thought of changing it up. Funny how we get stuck in a rut...
