Besides being one of the most famous culinary creations in the Middle East, falafel is also packed with nutrients. While both chickpeas and sacha inchi are rich in protein for building muscles and other tissues, only the latter is considered complete protein as it contains all nine amino acids that the body does not produce. As such, these falafel burgers will keep you well-nourished and full for longer!
