When you’re on a plant-based diet you always need to search for ways to incorporate protein into your meals. Legumes are a fantastic source of plant-based protein and they are very versatile. A few years ago I was trying to create vegan potato latkes and came up with this creative number – the falafelatke.
The falafalatka is not exactly a veggie burger (though it looks like it), it requires a bit of work but it’s really worth your time and efforts!
