For those of you who have never tried falafel before, they are a deep-fried patty made from fava beans or ground chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans)—or a combination of both. A variety of herbs and spices are added to them to give them their signature taste.

Falafels are a popular Middle Eastern dish. The best part about the crispy, flavorful balls is that they are usually vegan and are made without any animal products.
