If you’re short on time in the kitchen but are looking for easy, quick, and affordable kitchen hacks, you’ve come to the right place. Keep reading for tips and suggestions on making the ultimate falafel bowls at home. This sort of homemade dish is healthy, filling, and delicious!

Falafel Balls

Falafel is surprisingly easy to make at home whether you bake or fry them. However, if you’re looking to keep your hands chickpea-free, opt for a store-bought version. Trader Joe’s is an excellent and affordable choice! If you’re looking for a more authentic experience, pick some up from your local hummus joint!


Topping selection is imperative to the experience. Try dousing your bowl in homemade hummus, or buy some sesame paste and make your own tahini! Add toppings such as fried eggplant, cucumbers, tomato, pickles, pickled onions, cilantro, and spicy peppers!

Homemade Pita

It’s important to have a piping hot pita on the side of every bowl. We recommend picking some up at a local Mediterranean supermarket if you can find one, or try your hand at baking them if you’re feeling adventurous!
