    This was very good! I shaped them into hamburger sized patties and used a generous amount of cooking spray instead of olive oil (and doubled the cooking time). Kids loved them. Will definitely be making again. Thanks for the recipe! - 6/7/10

  • Just made these tonight & they are amazing! I actually used 2 cans of 15 oz beans and made larger size falafel, I think we came out with 12 large falafes. The rest will be frozen or eaten this week. Spices were spot on, I'd recommend eating w/ http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Tzatziki-Sauc
