Yet another source of protein

For a quick protein accompaniment at a meal, consider serving FALAFEL. You can make it, many sites offer the recipe:
Another option is shopping at COSTCO.  An internet site offers the nutritional breakdown.

I LOVE serving FALAFEL with this simple sauce.

Tahini Dressing
3 Tbsp. olive oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed or finely minced
zest and juice of 1 lemon
1/3 cup Tahini, stir well before measuring
1/2 tsp. salt and black pepper, to taste
1/4 tsp cumin powder
1/2 cup vegetable stock, or as needed
Mix all together.

ANOTHER OPTION:  Tonight I made the falafel with a side dish of Butternut Squash and Carrots in a Coconut Curry Sauce which lends itself well for a dipping sauce for the falafel.  Enjoy!
