Waffled falafel is everyone's favorite idea.
I can't take credit for it. Kathy from Stresscake (she of the waffled aloo parantha) was the first to suggest it to me — but she had a leg up because she knew about the blog before it started. Everyone else wasn't far behind.
And I've heard from people whose relationship with waffled falafel goes way back.
The falafel I waffled came from a mix. There aren't very many things I'm content to make from a box. But falafel is one of them.
I served the waffled falafel with hummus and a small salad of tomato, cucumber and parsley.
Preparing the falafel came first. I added water to the mix, then let it sit for 30 minutes to fully hydrate.
After that, I sliced up the tomatoes, peeled and cut the cucumber, and chopped up the parsley.
Then came the hummus.
I almost hate to tell you this, because for some of you it will mean that you can never make adequate hummus the easy way.
You will insist on making great hummus the hard way.
