This year one of my beloved friends who is traveling the world right now came back to Germany for few weeks. We had wonderful idea to cook together some Israeli food, as her boyfriend Adi comes from Israel and likes cooking! I remember when she told me on the phone that one of the dishes we will be cooking is traditional Israeli falafel.

I have never eaten falafel before. Why would I? While eating street food I always choose something with meat. Falafel sound to me far too vegetarian. But I was very positive about us cooking this, because food cooked with love will be tasting better then from any Kebab place here in Germany.

And I wasnt disappointed. Homemade falafel among with pita bread, homemade Israeli hummus and tabbouleh salad was amazing. Falafel became one of my favorite vegetarian dishes and hummus that Adi made was the best we have ever eaten.
