Falafel or felafel is a deep-fried ball, doughnut or patty made from ground chickpeas, fava beans, or both. Falafel is a traditional Middle Eastern food, that most likely originated in Egypt.
Falafel balls may also be eaten alone as a snack or served as part of a meze (assortment of appetisers).
Spinach Falafels, rich in protein packed chickpeas and the iron-filled spinach, are full of nutrients that make them the perfect lunch or dinner.
We learned this spinach falafel with carrots dish in Tromso, Norway from an amazing person, a dedicated tour guide. We booked a northern lights chasing tour and the guide, the organiser cooked this dish for the people who were vegetarian. That night we were lucky that we saw the amazing northern lights (aurora). He is a great guide, a great cook and a great organiser. He made every efforts to comfort people and to make their trip a lovely lifetime amazing memory.
My husband and I find this dish very different, yummy and healthy, so we started making at home and this dish is one of our favourite dishes.
Whenever we cook this dish all our beautiful memories of enjoying northern lights gets fresh. That was an amazing experience.
