Delightful Leftovers

Delightful Leftovers_Featured

Have some leftover gyro or meat or falafel and wondering how to spice that up? You are at the right place. My husband and I went out for dinner last night and we came back home with some gyro and falafel. So I decided to spruce these up for our meal today and so, I put together a veggie bowl just with falafel for the vegetarians and a meat based bowl for my fellow carnivores 🙂

Both the bowls are garnished with sliced heirloom tomatoes, boiled asparagus and a generous side of spiced quinoa. You could add different garnishes and carbs of your choice. You could experiment with adding white/brown rice or millets instead of quinoa. Checkout our recipe below and hope you love your leftover mashup too!
