Very Delish falafel recipe. I needed a Lenten dish and we love falafel and I had everything on hand so I tried it. We truly loved it. There is a local place here that sells falafel balls and we love them. They are the size of cocktail meatballs, maybe a tiny bit larger. I decided to make mine the same size and shape as those. Falafel: changed nothing except added an extra clove of garlic for good measure. Sauce: we love tzatziki sauce with falafel however, I wanted to try this entire recipe. Usually tzatziki is shredded cucumber and this was chopped and of course tzatziki has garlic and this doesn't. . So I made the sauce exactly as written only used fresh dill (is that really a change???) Tasted it....I HAD to add lemon juice. Just a smidge. That was a change so I'm sorry for changing it. Well, we loved loved loved the sauce like this. Some of us even liked it more than my tzatziki because there wasn't that "raw garlic bite" yet still complimented the falafel. I pan heated pocketless pita breads.... 1 minute on each side. I cut each in half and put a dollop of sauce, the falafel ball, and then tomato on top. Folded and enjoyed immensely. Thanks for a truly great recipe. Will make again and again.
