Excellent recipe!! I have made falafels from a different recipe and even from a box but these were the best!! My introduction to Falafels were in a restaurant--inside a soft tortilla-like shell with cucumbers but these have such a rich flavor that I didn't miss the tortilla or the cucumbers. Thank you for this recipe! Excellent! Read More

Great way to get some fiber in my family without them knowing what it was made from. I was able to make early in AM and reheat on baking stone and they were just as good as when I took them out of oil the first time. I used coconut oil instead of canola. Wonderful dill sauce too. Read More

Easy to make and a great way to clear the pantry of those year-old cans of Goya Chick Peas! Awesome taste and will definitely make again. Felt it was a little light on the garlic and will add more next time around. Could also see added a little heat next time w/some red pepper flakes or hot minced hot peppers. Read More

Good! Kids all ate the falafels straight up without the tzatziki sauce and adults wrapped them up in naan bread with lettuce and tomatoes. Yum! Read More

This recipe turned out great. I used a 5.3 oz container of Oikos plain yogurt and just cut back a bit on all the ingredients. Tasted great with the Falafel recipe I used from Allrecipe also. Read More
