I like falafel on naan.

For a side dish I eat french fries. Really, I do.

I love falafel, but I've never attempted to make it at home. I'll leave it to the nice Lebanese people at the diner. I like it on a spinach salad or wrapped in a whole wheat pita with cucumber/yogurt sauce and tomatoes.

I love saying falafel, too. falafelfalafelfalafel. Say it loud and there's music playing, Say it soft and it's almost like praying. (with apologies to West Side Story)

I vote for a salad too!

I made baked falafel a couple of weeks ago. They came out great! However, I finished mine in a frying pan with just a tablespoon of oil to get that crispness that I love in a falafel.

Love the idea of a salad!
I have a meat and potatoes kind of man to feed, any recommendations for a rice or potato dish, so he doesnt notice so much that theres no meat?
I know its technically a double starch.....

How do you think that compares to a traditional fried falafel?
I have been eyeballing baking them.

I thought the baked ones were just as good Frying them off at the end made the difference in my opinion. The texture was there which I did not achieve just baking them. I look forward to making them again

The crunch is so much a part of what makes them wonderful, I am going to try making it that way, thanks!
