One of my summer go-to recipes is falafel. It is so delicious and you can do a lot of different things with it. This post includes a well-rounded bowl including rice, veggies, falafel, and a tangy tahini dressing. A dish like this is so great because it helps you hit your goal for proteins, vegetables, and also has healthy antioxidants from onion, garlic, and turmeric.

Assembly of these bowls is quite simple once you have made everything. These items are all great for meal prep because the recipes produce enough for several servings, and it all reheats quite well. Microwaved falafel do get a bit soft, but when you break them up and mix it into the bowl it all tastes great. This is going to be on my list for packable lunches when life returns to normal and I can pack my husband’s lunches again!
