I really like falafel. I'm a total failure at making it though. It's just a flipping disaster. I mean that literally. I can't flip them.
So I decided to try the falafel crockpot recipe from 365 Crockpot. First off, let me just say - it WORKS. I did NOT think that you could crockpot falafel and have it come out all crunchy. I did lay a towel over the top of the crockpot under the lid to absorb extra moisture, but I don't think it was necessary.
The second thing I will say is that I didn't feel like the spices were strong enough. That's probably because I don't actually measure spices and just shake. There is no way I put two tablespoons of cumin and a tablespoon of ground coriander in this, and, I didn't put in nearly enough salt.
I served the falafel with a greek yogurt-dill sauce that was very good. I took about 5 stems of dill, washed and trimmed them, and chopped them, and then mixed them with about half a cup of greek yogurt. I would be open to suggestions for ways to improve this sauce. What do you like on falafel?
