The first time we made the falafel waffle the little dude turned up his nose. I think the whole waffle concept threw him off his game. Now he’s accustomed to seeing the strange squares, and he jumped right in to make his own falafel plate. He buried his falafel under lettuce, naan, peppers, and cucumbers. (Naan – Use the standard dough recipe divided into 16 pieces. Roll and stretch thin. Cook for a couple minutes on each side in a hot pan or griddle.) Then he dollop dumped tatziki and hummus on top. I didn’t think he would be able to make a go of actually eating this without it ending up on the floor, but the kid was successful. He showed that piled naan who was boss and devoured the whole yummy meal.
*I haven’t posted a real tatziki recipe because it’s such a throw together. I whiz a package of silken tofu in the food processor with a little olive oil, lemon juice, a minced garlic clove, and salt/pepper until smooth. Then that’s folded together with a cucumber that was halved, deseeded, and diced really small. The cucumber can also be grated and squeezed dry.falafel, hummus, kid food, recipes, tatziki, vegan, vegetarian
