Meatless Monday: Falafel Stuffed Potatoes, Guest Post from Athletic Avocado
Happy Monday, Fit Foodie friends! So on Friday I promised you some very yummy guest posts this week and today I have the pleasure of welcoming Rachel and Bethany from Athletic Avocado!
If you aren’t familiar with all the fantastic deliciousness they whip up, you need to be! And when I say deliciousness, I mean recipes like: Fluffer Nutter Ice Cream, Strawberry Lemon-Cream Pie Breakfast Pizza and Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Brulee…YUM!
The recipe they are sharing today is no exception! I’ll let them take it from here. 😉
I love making recipes with potatoes. They are so versatile and are like a blank canvas; they go well with almost any flavor! In our house we always have a plethora of potatoes and we always make them every night for dinner, either baked whole or cut into fries.I knew I needed to use up the can of opened chickpeas in the back of the fridge, but I just wasn’t sure what to make with them.
A light bulb went off in my head, “how bout Falfels?” But I don’t like making plain and simple recipes, I like to innovate and change them so they are unique. So I combined the idea of the double-stuffed potato and the falafel to make falafel stuffed potatoes! Wohoo! Im a genius right?
