Simple and delicious! I made the recipe exactly as written (without breadcrumbs) then left the mixture in the fridge overnight. I added the breadcrumbs and formed the balls in the morning, stuck them in the crockpot and had them for lunch the next day. They were wonderful! It was our first experience with falafel and I have to admit I was leary of using the crockpot because I wasn't sure we would get that "fried" experience. Let me just say, they were crispy and delicious! We served them with lettuce, tomato, and a cucumber yogurt mixture on a tortilla (for him) and a sandwich roll (for me). Wonderful!!
This is a great dish! My family really liked it. I would make my falafel balls a little smaller next time, but everything was great!
