The sunshine burgers are back in a falafel version and as expected, they are fabulous!
Served with tzatziki sauce and a greek salad it was a fast, fresh, balanced meal! I can’t wait to try the Southwest variety as well – these are definitely a new staple in our house!

Chopped cucumber
Minced garlic
Splash of olive oil & vinegar
Dill, Salt & Pepper
