I've been making falafels from a box mix for a long time, but I wanted to try a from-scratch version. My family loved this recipe! I used dry garbanzo beans that I prepared myself instead of canned beans. The final mixture was too dry and crumbly to hold together, but I saw that another reviewer had suggested adding an egg. Since I don't use eggs, I added egg replacer instead, and I also added some water. With those additions, the mixture was perfect. To make it healthier, I fried the patties without oil. Big hit. I served them with baba ghanouj, hummus, cucumber dill sauce, homemade pita chips, and salad.
