I haven't tried this, but it sounds both easy and tasty. And it must be healthier than deep-fried falafel!

Really good, though I haven't tasted falafels before, so I wouldn't know how close this comes to the real thing. The only thing I changed was in using dried parsley instead of fresh. Next time I'll try some cumin and maybe some more pepper. I flattened the balls a little into pudgy little patties before baking because I wanted to use them in pita pockets. I had a great dinner with a pita pocked lined with hummus and one of these falafels resting inside! Thanks Lennie! :-)

This was great! I added ground corriander, and extra pepper. I also baked these in a mini muffin tin with a light spray of cooking oil, and brushed the tops with a little olive oil. I now have a freezer bag full for quick lunch prep.
