A Burger packed and filled with healthy Mediterranean flavored Fallafel Patty and Hummus.
 
Veg Fallafel Burger
Fallafel with Hummus is a very popular street food in Middle East Countries and it is a national food of Israel. Hummus is a Sauce/Dip accompanied with fallafel. They usually serve them in a pita bread to make a sandwich but here I tried to make a burger using fallafel. It is a healthy burger that's filling too. These are great for anyone who craves a big bite but doesn't want the calories.
