Lulu’s Local Eatery’s Sweet Potato Falafel

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

Set your annual weight-loss resolution for 2013? Allow us to help. The sweet potato falafel at Lulu’s Local Eatery will have you eating healthy without even realizing it. The falafel is fried, yes, but it’s loaded with sweet potato, which is jam-packed with fiber and nutrients, and studded with good-for-you greens. It gets wrapped in a pita and finished with a figure-friendly tzatziki sauce. Counting carbs? Switch out that pita for fresh greens. This is gonna be your year – or at least your afternoon.

Meatless Monday: Farm to Falafel

Monday, September 10th, 2012

It’s like I died and went to heaven – or Lulu’s Local Eatery. You know, that food truck at Food Truck Fridays that has lines across the park? I was lucky enough to catch Lulu’s on a slower day at City Garden, but even if there was a line, the wait would have been worth it.

After hearing rave reviews about the truck with the rooftop garden, I couldn’t wait to try the Sweet Potato Falafel. The bright orange super food is mashed and combined with a heavy hand of spices, including cumin and garlic. After being lightly fried in all-natural peanut oil and laid in a warm, fluffy pita, this sweet falafel is painted with a thick, zesty tzatziki sauce that adds just the right amount of savory. Throw in the crunch of cool cucumbers and mild red onions, and you have one filling farm-to-truck meal that starts the week off right.

Not only can you feel good about what this meal does (or doesn’t do) to your waistline, you can also breathe a sigh of relief about its environmental impact. Owners Robert Tucker and Lauren Loomis use local ingredients when they can, supporting many local farmers and producers. They also use 100-percent compostable and biodegradable serving ware with their food. And a rooftop garden? That’s just the icing on the cake – er, truck.

I’ll certainly be following Lulu’s, so I can check out the truck’s other signature items. And, if it just so happens to park next to Sarah’s Cake Stop, there’s nothing better than a supremely succulent Triple Chocolate cupcake to ruin a healthy lunch.
