Kid Food – Falafel

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. […]

This is my exact replica with one exception. We made a dense whole grain dough and made that into little naan/pita sized individual servings. Instead […]
