A great idea for a healthier version of a famous street food is the baked version of falafel.  Falafel is a popular street food found in the Middle East.  You can make fresh whole wheat pitas, or you can purchase whole wheat pitas at the store, but I’ll tell you people are really impressed when you tell them that you made the pita, the falafel, and the tzatziki sauce from scratch…just saying.  The recipe to make the falafel with cooking time will take about 30 minutes (20 minutes cooking time). I have made this fresh twice and was so excited about the simplicty, and my friends were more excited about how good it tasted and the fact that it was all fresh.

Give falafel a try, I like to have it on a Saturday as a lighter meal in the day.
