This delicious vegan falafel recipe with Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat is exceptionally rich. It packs more vitamins, minerals, protein, and fiber than traditional falafel hands down.

At one point or another most vegans and vegetarians discover falafel, which happened to me many decades ago when I first got hooked. But nowadays I rock this organic vegan falafel recipe with the powerful nutrients of Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat (HTB) onboard.

That’s because HTB, a bioactive fruit seed, is an amazing plant. It packs rutin, quercetin, luteolin, and hesperidin. It also stacks vitamins, minerals, protein, and fiber.

In fact according to one report it’s “the most immuneoactive, nutrient-dense plant yet discovered.”

Well it certainly rocks in pancakes, waffles, pizza crust, and sourdough bread. And of course in these crispy rich falafel balls that are absolutely delicious.

This recipe is organic, vegan, and gluten-free.
