Lucky old you! E-mail me a couple of yours, will you? I could just fancy a falafel at the moment :D

Sure! My aunt makes them, she's amazing at it. Hers are even better than the falafel I had in falafel restaurants in the Middle East!

You can also make them with a combination of chick peas and fava beans. They seem even better with that combination.

FYI, falafel isn't an animal meat substitute, just like seiten, tempeh, and tofu aren't. They are stand alone food items. The origin of falafel is said to date back to the Egyptian desert nomads who then introduced them to Asian Arabs, and Asian Hebrews.

No... but I don't remember if he was saying they literally taste the same, or if he was just saying he enjoys the flavor of falafel just as much as the other. I'd have to go back and re-read the original post.

I don't think anything else compares to that other juice. ;)

I love Falafal! there is a great recipe for them in the "garden of vegan" cook book. It uses canned chick peas and it works very well. You shallow fry these one's too. Gorgeous

No, no, no. What I said was falafel smells similar to some of the gal’s _____ that I’ve been with in the past. There was either a falafel smell (which is good) no smell (again, good), a soap fruity scent smell (good again), or a fish smell (BAD!!!!).

It's the cumin in falafel actually. If you have cumin around, smell it, and see if you think it’s similar. :p

I've always made mine with red beans, or mixed with chick peas. Personally, I chop some onion and garlic, mix it with the pre heated beans and mash them together, put some basil, different herbs and lemon juice. I cook them on a pan with margarine, otherwise, they don't stick together.

But I make the best hummus ever, I think I suck with falafel, but I'd love if someone made me some.

I bought a packet of falafel mix the other day for the 1st time (the mix that is,i love falafel) but i added about 6 or 7 garlic cloves and a tablespoon of lemon juice and a touch of tobasco.As i dont have a deep fryer i put olive oil in a small backing tray and filled it with the mix and baked it for 20 mins.
What i endedup with was a delicious falafel cake that i just cut strips off and scooped up humous with for the next day or so!:D
