With hummus sweeping grocery stores across the nation, perhaps it’s not surprising that a major fast-food chain is experimenting with falafel.
The Subway sandwich chain has gotten into the act with its new falafel sandwich, which the company is currently testing in the Chicago area. The chain is billing the meal as a healthy option, noting that it contains no saturated fat and is a good source of protein.
A special Web page promoting the sandwich shows it offered on whole-wheat bread in the traditional sub-sandwich style, as well as on a piece of flat bread that resembles pita crossed with Wonder Bread. The sandwiches contain chopped tomatoes and cucumbers, as well as what appears to be Subway’s take on tahina.
