Excellent recipe!! I have made falafels from a different recipe and even from a box, but these were the best!! My introduction to Falafels were in a restaurant--inside a soft tortilla-like shell with cucumbers, but these have such a rich flavor that I didn't miss the tortilla or the cucumbers. Thank you for this recipe! Excellent!

Great way to get some fiber in my family without them knowing what it was made from. I was able to make early in AM and reheat on baking stone and they were just as good as when I took them out of oil the first time. I used coconut oil instead of canola. Wonderful dill sauce too.

This recipe turned out great. I used a 5.3 oz container of Oikos plain yogurt and just cut back a bit on all the ingredients. Tasted great with the Falafel recipe I used from Allrecipe also.

Just made it! I personally don't like cilantro, so I changed it for parsley! Came out very good! My suggestion, instead 2 inch patties try 1.5 inch ball

I made this dish and i got nervous in the middle that it might not turn out tasty at all but to my surprise it is by far one of the best tasting falafels i have had. i recommend to try this exactly as told .

Good! Kids all ate the falafels straight up without the tzatziki sauce, and adults wrapped them up in naan bread with lettuce and tomatoes. Yum!

Easy to make and a great way to clear the pantry of those year-old cans of Goya Chick Peas! Awesome taste and will definitely make again. Felt it was a little light on the garlic and will add more next time around. Could also see added a little heat next time w/some red pepper flakes or hot minced hot peppers.
