Charred Mediterranean Vegan Falafel Burger

Traditional falafel is fantastic, but we’re turning the Mediterranean morsels on its head thanks to this toothsome adaptation by Dunja Gulin’s Falafel Forever: Nutritious and Tasty Recipes for Fried, Baked, Raw, Vegan and More! Made juicy with the addition of rosy red beets and charred to a perfect crisp, we have no doubt that these hearty burgers will have you forgetting all about pita.
