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.
Awesome and filling. I used a different dip thou..
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!
Good sauce as an addition
Delicious and healthy

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.
