A twist on my original Japanese-Mediterranean fusion falafels — some flavors I’ve been trying to re-create from a Turkish chef friend of mine.
When you first glance at the ingredients list, you might notice one particular ingredient: Miso. Wait, what place does miso have in a falafel burger?
Let me tell you all about it. If you haven’t been adding miso to your burgers/falafels/hummus, you’re really missing out. Miso is honestly the ultimate magic ingredient. Its paste-like consistency not only helps bind everything together, but has a salty, umami flavor that will add depth and meatiness to pretty much anything.
Cut it in half to reveal that beautiful cross section…it is such a hearty and filling vegan burger!
