Gluten Free Falafel

Heaven Mills Gluten Free Pita Bread 12oz

Heaven Mills Gluten Free Pitas
Falafel are a great choice for people who can't tolerate dairy. This iconic Middle Eastern dish is typically made with wheat and then stuffed into wheat laden pitas. If you're not sensitive to wheat, go ahead and buy the packaged frozen falafel (like Amnon's).If you're gluten sensitive try the recipe for falafel balls below. Stuff the balls into warm gluten free pitas.  Gluten Free Pitas from Heaven Mills are "heavenly" with falafel. Fill with shredded salad, diced pickles, chumus (make sure it doesn't have pine nuts), and chopped tomatoes. Make it as spicy as you like. Just because you're avoiding allergens doesn't mean you have to  avoid flavor.
* If you're allergic to legumes (such as peanuts or peas) be aware that chickpeas (found in falafel and chumus) can have cross reactivity with other legumes. Don't avoid un-necessarily, ask your Dr.
