I love falafel. Part of it is the name, I know it. It's just so much fun to say. Falafel.
We had them for dinner, with all the fixin's. Tahini mixed with lemon juice and a little olive oil. Homemade tzatziki. Tomatoes and lettuce. They were sublime. When spring comes around, I gravitate toward these simpler, lighter meals. And these falafel are baked, not fried! I have to admit, their baked appearance made me a little nervous when I pulled them out of the oven. But their texture is perfect. Once you bite in, it's just creamy, well-spiced goodness.
Kudos to janecooks, the recipe-sharer at Tasty Kitchen! Her falafel recipe will soon reside in my actual recipe box.
