I had some yummy falafel last night....

I know we all know how to make falafel (out of a box), but I made some yummy yogurt dill sauce to go on my pita sandwich last night that gave it just what it needed. Plus, it's so easy to make.

  • 1 cup nonfat plain yogurt
  • 2 TBS dill (as much as you want or can stand)
  • salt & pepper
  • 0ptional: a couple splashes of hot sauce, garlic and a few drops of lemon juice
  • stir
  • (One more thing, I've also had the dill sauce with cucumber and that was really cool, literally, it gave the sauce a cooler taste. In that case grate the cucumber, sprinkle with salt, leave it in the refrigerator for 15 minutes, drain excess water and then mix in the remaining ingredients . Explore.)
Another key part in having a great pita sandwich is veggies.... lots of veggies: carrots, spinach, radishes, cucumber, onion, tomato, etc. Also, don't forget the hummus.

I actually have never made falafel from scratch, I always use the mix! Do you have a good recipe?

No, I just use the box. I bet it's not too hard. I just meant that we all know how to make falafel out of the box, not from scratch. sorry. But we should find out how.
