    Just made the mixture up, currently chilling until later. They're free on Green/Extra Easy. I hope they taste as nice as they smell, I'm having a little party on Boxing Day so if these turn out well I'll be making them again! Has anyone tried these out yet?

    the only problem I have with fafafel is it is sooo dry but on the positive side it is filling. I shall look forward to hearing the verdict of SW version

    I saw the recipe for those and thought they looked nice, so will be interested in how good they are.

    I bet they would be nice with a yoghurt and mint dip.

    That's what they suggest in the recipe, to serve with VLF natural yoghurt flavoured with mint and red chilli.

    They are very nice flavour wise but as already said, a bit on the dry side so deffinately do a dip. I added all sorts of different flavours to the ones I made such as a bit of mango chutney etc and as you only need a bit to add some flavour, i didn't syn it.

    i make falafel and serve with total 0% yoghurt with a bit of lemon juice, garlic and fresh mint in (if i have any). i also make rice, a tomato sauce with herbs and serve with a mini pitta (syned).

    it feels like a feast and is free except for the pitta - yummy!

    I made these from another SW mag, can't remember the date. I didn't like them, tried to eat them but could manage only a few mouthfuls. I made the dip too :cry:

    I was desperate to like them too

    I made these from an earlier mag & we all loved them.

    Falafel's are made from chick peas & herbs I think you either love them or hate them :)

    do you think you can use tinned chick peas instead of dried?

    Evening everyone

    I tried these last night. They were nice, but I think they could have done with more spice in them to give them a bit of a kick. The mixture makes quite a lot if you do them as little bite-sized ones. They are quite dry as already mentioned, so you definitely need something to dip them in!

    As to using tinned chickpeas, I can't see why it wouldn't work as you have to blend them anyway.
