Baked Beet Falafel Salad

This twist on falafel includes beets with chickpeas and spices. Not only do the beets provide a boost of nutrition, but they also add a touch of natural sweetness. Baked rather than fried and served on a bed of greens and drizzled with lemony tahini dressing for a fun Middle Eastern-inspired dinner.
