Is Falafel healthy?

Had it for lunch, seemed like a good choice - am I wrong?


  • No to the first question.  Yes to the second.  Falafel is deep fried, and I would even say that chickpeas or fava beans themselves are middle of the road, i.e. not very healthful but not bad for you either.  So as a whole, I'd say that Falafel is not good for you.  Better than deep-fried oreos, but much worse than beans/veggies that have not been dunked in hot oil.
