Falafel is a Middle Eastern dish made of smashed chick peas and spices that's then fried into small patties or balls. Amazing.
Often, you can find a falafel mix in the grocery stores that's ready to cook or you can make your own. I've used a pre-made mix here but I think in the future I'll try making my own!
To make this salad:
Heat a small amount of oil in a pan until the oil is shimmering. Add small teaspoonfuls of the falafel and flatten into little patties. Fry until golden brown and crispy on both sides.
Serve the falafel medallions while still warm on a bed of fancy lettuce with mushrooms, feta cheese, spring onion, and garlic avocado dressing.
