Falafel Best Practices

Falafel Best Practices

Texture is key to any great falafel. They should be crisp on the surface, fluffy and tender in the middle, and never, ever dry. The Falafel Pita Pockets with Lemon Yogurt Sauce in our Family Meals Plan next week, are loaded with mushrooms and scallions that keep the patties moist while giving them a wonderful flavor. But in order to get the texture just right, you must mash the ingredients by hand. Don’t use a food processor. We learned the hard way that it will liquify the mixture into a batter better suited to pancakes than falafel.
