Sean's Falafel and Cucumber Sauce
Awesome recipe! I did omit the eggs and breadcrumbs instead I added flour as one reviewer suggested I allowed the mixture to set in for about 30 minutes. The seasoning is just right. Soo very good I doubled the recipe, cooked up whole batch and have in the freezer for future lunches! In the future I think I would not cook the falafels then freeze, there is a texture issue. I would make the whole thing shape patties, then flash freeze. I would cook frozen patties so the freshness and crispness wouldn't be compromised.

Dumplings
I believe I figured out why some reviewers found the dumplings in the recipe to be "gummy", the water wasn't hot enough to fully cook the dumplings and it gets all gummy. I remade my batch bc it was just that all gummy and goopy, good thing I cooked them separate from my Chicken Parkiash. Make sure your water is a LIGHT boil before you add the dumplings, then reduce to simmer with lid on- (JUST LIKE THE DIRECTIONS INSTRUCT!)so you don't make them tough and chewy. I did just that, plus I don't like the way it changes the texture of the dish when you add directly to the soup/stew-guess it depends on what you were raised on? Plus to address those ppl who found it bland, perhaps you should try it again only use real butter, cold from fridge and add more salt, pepper, parsley as the option offers and I added 1 t each onion and garlic powder plus some chicken granulated bullion, just like 1/2t to the dry ingredients, this made an AMAZING recipe. On its own it is quite tasty I only offered the suggestions to those concerns.
