Air Fryer Falafel

Falafel is a delicious Middle-Eastern vegetarian dish made with chickpeas, a mix of onions and different herbs and spices. They are shaped like meatballs, but there’s no meat in them. I wanted to create a falafel recipe that was quick and easy, made from canned chickpeas and didn’t require frying. Solution, air fryer to the rescue! You can see more air fryer recipes here!

I love Chinese takeout, but I don’t love all the extra calories. That’s why I like to take classic Chinese dishes and make lighter versions. You should also try my Kung Pao Chicken Zoodles, Orange Chicken and Chicken and Broccoli Stir-Fry makeovers. Kung Pao Tofu would awesome served with my take on Wonton Soup. The only thing better than eating one of your favorite Chinese meals is eating a healthier version so you can enjoy it more often!

These Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins are always such a hit on my blog, I knew I would love this cream cheese swirl version! They take less than 30 minutes to bake and the best part, these pumpkin muffins are under 200 calories! SO much lighter than any bakery or Starbucks muffins. Most pumpkin recipes use at least 1/2 cup butter or oil but these only use 2 tablespoons for the whole batch. Thanks to the canned pumpkin, they are so moist without adding a ton of butter or oil.

It’s actually a fruit, and great in so many vegetarian dishes like these meatless Eggplant Meatballs, Eggplant Parmesan and Eggplant Rollatini.
