Okay, I know I said that I would start using more creative names for my recipes, but the only one that I could think of for this was “falla a fell(ow)” which doesn’t really make sense (it was supposed to be a play on the phrase follow a fellow lol). Anyways, this recipe is much easier to form than its title. With @traderjoes microwaveable falafel and by pre-cooking the quinua, sweet potato, chickpeas, and dressing. I highly recommend pre-preparing these components because they not only make the preparation of this meal more efficient, but they can also be used in many other recipes, many of which I have already posted about and will continue to post. Anyways, you can see the full recipe below! The instructions are pretty self explanatory, so they are not included, but you can ALWAYS comment / dm me if you have questions on how to prepare anything! .

This salad has the perfect crunch and saltiness to it! It can be paired with a bigger meal or eaten as a full meal itself, depending on your hunger level. Also, to make it more filling you can add some marinated salmon (recipe on my previous “Salmon Teriyaki” post) or tamari marinated tofu. Either way it’s delicious!

Ingredients:
-Brussels sprouts (finely chopped)
-chickpeas
-red onion (pickled in mustard, honey, and sesame oil)
-sliced almonds (toasted in tamari sauce)
-avocado (optional)

Dressing:
-sesame oil
-tamari
-mustard
-everything but the bagel seasoning
-tahini
