Every week, we make it a point to stop at one of my favorite local Mediterranean restaurants. I always order the same thing. The falafel salad. The falafel comes with a delicious wood oven pita, feta, and kalamata olives beautifully arranged on a crisp salad of romaine, cucumbers and tomatoes with a side of Tahina. YUM!
Now the problem is, there are very few restaurants in our area that offer such a delightful meal. So, I would like to attempt falafel making at home.
I have googled falafel and read numerous recipes, but I always put more credence in what my fellow Serious Eaters think. Do you falafel? Do you fry it? Can it be baked? (I'm baking this year. 2009, the year of the Oven!)
