It goes against everything that I stand for (because of the frying), but I made this falafel recipe.  I was sure I'd never fry anything my entire life, but I like falafel so much that I had to give it a try.  This turned out pretty well, but I would make a few changes in the future.  The few things that I did differently from the recipe were to leave out the breadcrumbs, add 1 tsp salt, and to increase the cumin to 1 Tbsp.  Next time I think I'd substitute more cilantro instead of the parsley, increase the cumin even more (maybe to 1.5 Tbsp), and increase the salt to 1.5-2 tsp.

I love falafel, but also don't like frying things. When I make it at home I always do it on the grill. Instead of round balls I flatten them a little so there is more surface area, brush them with a little oil and then grill them on aluminum foil over a hot grill. Something to try next time - if you have a grill.
