Falafel With a Twist

Falafels are typical vegetarian fare in Middle Eastern homes, especially in countries such as Israel and Egypt. It is also widely available in Europe and North America where ever you have a Middle Eastern restaurant or eatery. The twist in this recipe is the filling that goes into making the falafels and the toppings as well. Usually it is coleslaw as the salad of choice, but I find the broccoli slaw makes for a prettier and crunchier salad topping. Just a note: when cutting the pitas in half, there is no vertical or horizontal as it is round. But each half is supposed to create a pocket for the falafel balls and salad to go inside.
