Thread Name: BS: Favourite felafel/bean pattie recipes?
Subject: RE: BS: Favourite felafel/bean pattie recipes?
I enjoy falafel wraps, just had one this Saturday.

There are companies which make packets and boxes of falafel mix. When I consider the amount of work and number of ingredients which go into the making of this humble food, I suggest you try the mixes first.

The usual way to serve falafel is to put the patties in a pita, then add chunks of lettuce, onion and tomato, then douse it all with tatziki (sp?), which is yogurt flavored with chopped cucumber and mint. I believe that by the time you add the tomatoes, onion and tatziki, it hardly matters what the falafel tastes like.

Betcha anything the cafe I bought from used a mix.

Falafel is made with fava beans, and some people are allergic to them. I did a little checking, but found it hard to get learn how many people have this allergy and how to deal with it.
