    Scoutie's Note:

    Although I have not made this yet, I LOVE falafels! I used to have them all the time from a little food stand while in college. One reviewer on the other site, said she thought 20 minutes on each side for the baking was better, so keep an eye out on them, you don't want them falling apart. I think Pita Bread for this recipe would also work just fine. It's worth the effort to seek out Greek yogurt, which is thick, rich, and creamy. You can make the sauce up to three days in advance and the falafel mixture up to one day ahead; then bake falafel patties just before serving. I think a blender or a hand-held immersion blender would work if you don't have a food processor. Take note, prep time does not include the standing time for the bulger.
