Falafel Sandwich

Vegetarianism has many followers today while Falafel is become popular all over the US even though it is a Middle Eastern delicacy. If you haven't snacked on this delicious treat yet, there are many Falafel Monterey restaurants to whet your appetite. Whether you are zipping home from work or hungry after a day at the ball park, Falafel is a great alternative to meat-laden street food. It is made from chickpeas or fava beans which is made into a paste, shaped into balls and deep fried. Chickpeas are a great source of vitamins and proteins which makes it one of the healthiest alternatives in fast food. Many Falafel Monterey outlets use it as a versatile ingredient to add to spaghetti and noodles, or the equivalent of a veg. hamburger.

Falafel is usually served with pita bread while the other ingredients that make up the dish are baking soda, parsley, onions, and garlic, before it is deep fried. Most Falafel Monterey restaurants garnish it with tomatoes, cucumber, lettuce, and Tahini sauce. If deep fried food isn't your style, then you can choose to have baked falafel, although you may find slight variation in the taste. However, this is the ideal solution for heart patients and diabetics who can request a Falafel Monterey outlet for the baked version. The falafel sandwich is a popular Israeli food served on many occasions and at many Jewish outlets across the US. So popular is the dish that Israeli and Jordanian diplomats nearly stirred up a diplomatic crisis, each claiming the falafel sandwich to be their country's national dish.
