Rainbow Falafel with Pickled Turnips
These falafel are a colorful and fragrant twist on the Middle Eastern staple. Unlike traditional falafel, these are baked and contain different vegetables, taking on their colors, flavors and nutrients. Beet-pickled turnips make a great topping for this dish but can be served on many other sandwiches and salads.
