Baked Falafel

Submitted by: RESPLENDENT

Introduction

I have always loved falafels, but was always concerned that pan frying was so high in fat. Not only was it unhealthy, but I hated the mess of all the oil. When baked, these falafels are extremely healthy and tasty!!

I found this recipe a long time ago online but do not remember where I got it.
