I love falafel. I never make it though. Simply because I think it takes too long. When in fact it's one of the easiest foods to make ever (as long as you soak the chickpeas the night before). You don't even have to precook the chickpeas! Just load everything into the quisenart and blend away. Then you just fry away in some nice oil. This was from a recipe that I found in the New York Times food pages a month or two ago and has just been hanging on the door of our fridge waiting oh so patiently to be made. It's a pretty good recipe but I believe it needs some extra spice or something like that. It made so many that if Peter's mom was here she would say "We need to have a falafel sale!" I don't think she's ever eaten falafel let alone knows what it is. But when she makes a ton of some sorta food she's alway's having a "sale". Its hysterical.
I plopped the falafel onto mesclun greens with some tomatoes, cucumbers, olive oil, lemon, salt + pepper. If it wasn't so late when I was making these I would have made a tahini dressing to pour on top as well.
