Advantages of the falafel cookie: They're baked, not fried so they're lower in fat (I mean, lets face it, your going to put creamy dressing on your falafel anyway)It's flat shape makes a tidier pita bread sandwichYou can use it as a base for an elegant dish stacked with rounds of eggplant, zucchini, portobellos etcYou can serve it with a salad as you might a round of nut-encrusted goat cheeseIt's highly transportable and can be eaten alone on the runYour kids are much more likely to try this healthy food if they think its a cookie
I used Fantastic Falafel mix. To make falafel cookies, preheat the oven to 375. Instead of frying the falafel, form them into small balls and flatten them onto a greased baking sheet. Brush the tops with a little olive oil and bake for 20 minutes until light brown. Serve as desired.
