I had an awful falafel at a high end restaurant last weekend and thought to myself "allrecipes.com can do better than this" and sure enough, this recipe pulled it off. I found like other reviewers that they did fall apart but that was remedied by making a more fine chop in the processor instead of a coarse chop. I followed the directions to a T but doubled it and stuffed it inside pita pockets with red onion, spinach, cucumbers, tomatoes and tzatziki for a vegetarian gyro. I also misted the patties with olive oil before baking so they didn't dry out at all.
My recipe for tzatziki: seed and grate 1/2 q cucumber and blot with paper towel, dust with coarse salt and let sit for 10 min. Combine 1tbsp minced garlic, 1 1/2 c greek yogurt, 1 tsp fresh mint, 1/2tsp dill, 1-2tbsp olive oil and half a squeezed lemon. Add cucumber and refrigerate for several hours for flavors to full merry.
I think this was by far the best falafel I've ever had. Thanks so much for the recipe! Awesome!
