Falafels with a Twist: Gluten-Free Recipe & Tantalizing Vegan Tzatziki Magic

Get ready for a mouthwatering journey that pays homage to my Greek roots! Growing up with a traditional Greek mother who believed in making recipes the traditional way (with includes using traditional dairy), I’ve embarked on a mission to recreate classic dishes without compromising my vegan diet.

Today, I’m excited to share with you my take on a beloved Mediterranean favorite: Falafels with a Twist with a delightful twist of Dreamy Tzatziki Sauce. While my mom might raise an eyebrow at my dairy-free versions, I’m thrilled to show you that these plant-based falafels and creamy tzatziki are just as delicious, satisfying, and guilt-free. Join me as we infuse a burst of flavor into your kitchen and celebrate the best of both worlds: Greek tradition and compassionate eating!
