About

Foxy Falafel was named the best falafel via the Citypages Best Of 2012.  We are super proud and humbled.  Thank you Twin Cities for all the support and making Foxy grow and become the best that it can be!  Below is the excellently written excerpt from Citypages

South Dakota farm gal Erica Strait left the state to study at New York City’s Institute for Integrative Nutrition and its Natural Gourmet Institute, guided by her interest in food and nutrition. It was in the big city that she not only trained in holistic health and whole-foods cooking but developed a love for falafel while working under Israeli chef Einat Admony. Back in the Midwest and working as a personal chef, Strait found herself missing Admony’s crispy falafel, so she did what anyone with the know-how would do: She started making it herself. Throw in Strait’s affection for street food, and you have Foxy Falafel, which for the last few years has been serving falafel, kombucha, bike-powered smoothies, and more at farmers’ markets and events around the Twin Cities. The only problem? During the colder months, fans of Foxy have missed Strait’s crispy falafel — and they know they can’t make it themselves. So until the market season starts up again, they can only dream and drool, thinking of Strait’s crunchy-on-the-outside, creamy-on-the-inside falafel balls, made with chickpeas she sprouts herself, as well as her pickled condiments and her three amazing sauces: a smoky/spicy/garlicky Tunisian harissa, a cool cucumber yogurt, and an herbaceous tahini.

    Yumminess! Happiness is stumbling across Foxy Falafel at the Buffalo Exchange. Looking forward to continued yumminess in my stomach at the Uptown Farmer’s Market.

    Wanted to check in again with you about sharing my composting worms—I have the containers to put them in but I need to get over to a friend’s who has a drill to drill airholes…

    Maybe next weekend?

      It was great to meet you too! I will be in touch with you about the composting worms for my garden. I am not sure if I need them anymore, but would love to share a kombucha mother with you if you still want one.

      I look forward to seeing you at the Uptown Farmers Market this summer! Yay!
