Falafel Bowl w/Chickpeas, Carrots & Turmeric Cauliflower Rice

International Falafel Day calls for a special power bowl. Pulling this together is a breeze, since I used Afia Foods pre-made falafel. I purchase this product at my local grocery store, but you can order their product online, as well. The chickpeas & carrots are lightly seasoned & prepared stove top. I also used frozen cauliflower rice, making this super simple to put together. Just put a bed of greens on the bottom of your bowl and you’re all set!
