Doesn't anyone use tahini mixed with mint, lemon juice, salt and water for dipping sauce? I assure you - it's fantastic in combination with falafel and pita bread. Also, a nice variation is to add finely chopped green spanish pepper to the mix.
May all beings experience true happiness, true freedom.

I used to make that but withot the mint, because I had no mint growing in my garden.

Do you have recipe for baking it?? I've never heard of that! You hear falafel and you automatically think fried..which is delicious but obviously not the healthiest choice.

i have a pretty base recipe,i dont add or do anything different and then form em chuck em in the oven on baking paper rather than in oil.
They might not be your standard idea of what a felafel should be but they are delicious and are minus the extra calories. And eaten with dipping sauce and salad etc, you dont notice that they are drier.

Do you have a recipe/directions for baking falafel? I'm not really interested in greasy/fried foods and so this might be more interesting than regular falafel, to me.

You would have to make them very flat, or they will be raw in the middle.
