Falafel Pita Pockets

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.
