Falafel!

Hi guys! 2 more days of finals and then I'm free for the summer! (Well, I'll still work till June 11th but still!)

I got the curry smell out of my apartment by simply opening the windows. I like the smell of curry while it's cooking but not afterwards!

I'm in the process of writing a 12 page take home final but I just had to share my falafel story with you!

001

Andy and I are always on the lookout for quick and healthy dinner options. This is especially true during finals week. I was stoked when I found these falafel balls at Costco.

002

And some tzatziki! This has 40 calories per 2 tbsps!

003

I made a big falafel salad using romaine lettuce, bell peppers, tomatoes and feta cheese. Instead of using dressing, I served tzatziki sauce on the side.

005

The falafel balls were perfect. Crunchy and yum! I baked them in the oven for 10 minutes but frying them in olive oil would probably be out of this world good.

006

Do you like falafel? I want to try making my own sometime!

Hey - thanks for your comment on my last post - losing a friend so young only makes you appreciate each day even more!

I just made falafels for the first time recently! I did fry them, but I don't see why you couldn't spray them with a bit of Pam and olive oil to get them crispy.

Here is the printer friendly recipe:

These look delicious! I am always tempted to get them at Costco but think I can make my own- still haven't!

I'm a sucker for good falafel. I've been wanting to try and make them at home. I'm just plain lazy to go out and get the ingredients. hahaha... I gotta do it when I get back from my trip.

I love falafel so I am going to check for these the next time I make it to Costco. That place scares me a bit!!

Such a great thing to have on hand for emergency meals too!

I love falafel, you know this, haha! I have made it myself but from a boxed mix, not from scratch yet. Perhaps a new project for this summer!
