Fantastic falafel dishes to try in Newcastle today!

Nutty and creamy in flavour, high in fibre and protein – the humble chickpea really punches above its legume weight.

If you go with the canned variety you can even use their liquid – aquafaba – in place of egg whites in your cocktails. Seriously!

Sure, hummus is great. But is there a better use of chickpeas than in a fantastic falafel?

Having tried these four flavourful dishes, all available in Newcastle right now, we think not!

These are chickpeas made to please. Go on, roll with it.
