Vegetarian Falafel Veggie Burger Recipe - Food I Make

Falafel is very old traditional dish and sandwich at the Middle-East, some say the name Felafel, but I prefer Falafel as we originally pronounce it. Falafel's major ingredients is typically consist of chickpeas and other spices, however in Egypt it's made of fava beans instead of chickpeas and called "Taameah". Falafel is originally made for sandwiches, and here in the US served now in plate with the sauce and vegetables come separately. what's in the sandwich, and what made it so great! Normally couple pieces of "Felafel", Tahini sauce, parsley, tomato and left"pickled turnip" the last one people some time ignore or eat it on the side.
People consider the falafel as the fast food of the Middl-Eastern countries, it's easy to make, sheep and healthy, so you find there so many small restaurants, fast food places and food buggies, almost everywhere. Falafel wasn't known in the USA till the last 15 or 20 years! Thus started being the king among vegetarians, probably for the same reason: Healthy, delicious, not expensive and easy to make.
