Falafel balls with Tahini
Falafel Pocket with the Works
What have I got in my pocket? The answer here is a great big jumble of 100% vegetarian deliciousness. The health benefits of falafel, tahini, and hummus are pretty clear by the way you feel after you’ve eaten, but just in case you’re still on the fence, we’ll go into some specifics. Once we’re done, you’ll know you can feel good about enjoying a falafel pocket from the pocket.
The falafel balls themselves really are the stars of our show. Our falafel balls are homemade from chickpeas, parsley, coriander and a few special spices. They’re quickly fried in light oil as soon as you order them, so they’re fresh, hot, and delicious.
Tahini is such a super-food it practically needs a cape. It’s made from sesame seeds, ground into a paste with lemon juice, water and spices, and is the perfect sauce to drizzle over a pocket.
Hummus is the most amazingly healthy food you may ever come across. Its main ingredients are chickpeas (which we already know are fantastic), and tahini, which is so full of nutrients it almost needs a blackboard all to itself. Our hummus is all home made, so you know you’re getting the good stuff!
We put the falafel in the pita pocket: Our pita-bread pockets are made with whole-wheat flour, meaning more nutrients and less sugar in the bread.
Pocket Fact # 1
Chickpeas are an important source of vitamin C and protein, while parsley is known to be a fantastic source of vitamins and other nutrients.
Pocket Fact # 3
Tahini and hummus are a rich source of Omega 3, which is essential brain-food (also found in fish). It’s also an amazing source of magnesium, iron, zinc, protein, vitamin A, thiamine, and some essential amino acids. The chickpeas in hummus also contains a decent amount of natural tryptophan, which relaxes you.
So, hummus makes you happy!
We add salad and salsa: Our Mediterranean salad is made with fresh juicy cucumbers and organic, privately grown tomatoes, fresh cut and served with a delicious home made tomato and capsicum salsa.
