Oh falafel, how I love thee: let me count the ways.
Oh falafel, I love you when you're served up with a simple salad of iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, and slathered with tahini dressing.
I also love you when you're all crazy with cucumbers and pickled veggies.
I love you the most when you come with roasted cauliflower.
And sometimes, I love you just by yourself.
I swear, it's the perfect fried food, more perfect than the fried potato. And the chickpeas make me think I'm eating healthy even though I'm not. Thank you, Middle East, for creating such a fabulous food.
And all this waxing poetic on falfels is making me hungry. Shit, I should make some soon. Maybe tomorrow!
Who else shares my love of falafel?
