Falafels with feta cheese

These perfectly herby and cheesy falafels are sure to be a hit on your dinner table. They are crispy, a tad bit nutty, and light. The light, airy texture makes you crave for more.

I love adding colorful veggies to my falafel, but nothing beats the classic. I kept mine very simple with a few pantry staples. The only spices I used are cumin powder and pepper. I used a mixture of parsley and coriander, but feel free to include mint as well. I pair my falafels with a dip which could be yogurt-based or chickpeas based (hummus).
