so, i attempted to make falafel over the summer. and i was surprised with how it turned out. i didn't mind eating it. so. the true test was whether the roommates would like it as well. wednesday, i excitedly prepared the ingredients. i use a can of hummus from amko [asian grocery in champaign, il]. it has blended chickpeas and tahini, so i just needed to add some fresh lemon and lime juice and garlic.

after letting it set in the fridge for a few hours, i put in a giant bit of flour, roll them into balls, roll them in MORE flour, and fry them.

i put them in tomato basil wraps from mission...rolled them up with diced tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, and [chopped] lettuce.

i liked it. and i'm pretty sure that my roommates did too b/c we ended up eating the entire plate.

can you tell how proud i am of my creation???
