This is a tasty vegan falafel that contains no eggs. Serve on Lebanese bread with tzatziki or tahini sauce, shredded lettuce and chopped tomato.
Altered ingredient amounts. this recipe was great, i pretty much followed everything exactly as stated, with the exception that i added a whole egg to the mixture. (i did this because, like others, i noted that it seemed a bit dry.) everything held together well during the frying process, without coating it anything in flour etc. also, rather than molding the mixture into balls, i patted them into patties about the size of the circle formed when you touch the tip of your middle finger to the tip of your thumb, about 2cm thick. this cut down on the frying time (and absorption of oil), and made neater pita pockets . thanks for the great recipe! - 29 Sep 2008
Used different ingredients. The first batch that I fried up were GREAT (didn't have coriander, and added some finely chopped mushrooms as well), but I made the mistake of not letting the oil reheat to make the second batch. MAKE SURE THAT THE OIL IS SUPER HOT AND THAT YOU ALLOW IT TO REHEAT TO A SUPER HOT TEMPERATURE BETWEEN BATCHES, OR ELSE THEY WILL FALL APART. - 29 Sep 2008
My daughter has just become vegan, which I thought would be a bit tricky to find some things the whole family could eat, but these babies are very tasty, although they can crumble when cooking. - 26 Sep 2011
