"These taste great in pita with salad, yogurt, and mint sauce!! The preparation time is minimal as the various ingredients can be left to soak/chill overnight."

I don't know about this one. It is very similar to "Sean's Falafel" on this site, but with split peas instead of chickpeas (which is traditionally what falafel is made of), so I thought I would like it ("Sean's" is great!). But having never had split peas, I wasn't quite sure about it. My only changes were that I used parsley in place of the mint and baked the falafel at 400 for 10 minutes on one side & then 10 more on the other side. It is very earthy tasting and a little dry. If nothing else, it is a very filling and healthy snack (if baked, not fried). That warranted an extra star. I don't know if I'll try it again though.
