I made it and used dried herbs as I didn't have any fresh. It still came out great. I'm thrilled to have found this recipe.

I didn't make the sauce this time, but the falafel was delicious. I didn't make this early enough to refrigerate for hours so I put it in the freezer and it worked great!

the falafel are delicious! It was my first time trying baked falafel (and not deep fried) and I loved the result!

Delicious! I love falafel and this is an easy, low-fat way of making it.

The baked product looked unappetising (dehydrated and crackly) and did not taste that very flavoursome. I liked the ease of the recipe, but perhaps more work is required to generate a delicious falafel. My hunt continues.
