Crispy falafel bites served in toasted pita bread with fresh salad and feta dip.
This is possibly one of my fastest dinners to whip up! Not only are my Falafel Pita Pockets quick and easy to make but they are also so tasty. A great vegetarian meal to add to your favourites.
I love the combination of the feta dip with the falafel and salad. You could also use crushed feta as a substitute. Feel free to get creative with your favourite fillings.
How to make Falafel Pita Pockets:
Heat oil in a frying pan and cook falafel for a few minutes on each side until crispy and heated through. Alternatively, bake them in the oven for 12 minutes at 200°C. Cut pita pockets in half and heat in the oven or the toaster.
Fill the warmed pitas with crispy falafel, tomatoes, rocket, spring onion and feta dip then serve immediately.
Common questions about Falafel Pita Pockets:

Where does falafel come from? Falafel comes from Lebanon.
