Enjoy a taste of the Mediterranean with this healthy Mediterranean Bowl filled with falafels, olives, red peppers, quinoa and topped with an easy hummus dressing!
I cut my butternut squash into bite size pieces, coat with a little olive oil, salt, and pepper and bake at 400 for 25 minutes. You could bake them at the same time as the falafels as it's the same temperature and about the same amount of time. When pre-cooking the falafels (and when I have extra time), I'll put the balls/patties in the fridge for about an hour before baking them. This seems to have them stick together a bit more but it's not necessary.
One of my readers from Tuscany suggested adding some pine nuts and fresh basil leaves to the dish. I think that sounds delicious so you could top the dish off with those as well.
