1 Meatless Monday: Falafel Flop


Do you ever try a new recipe out thinking it will be wonderful and it totally flops? 

Well this happened to me tonight. And the problem was not the recipe. It was me. I don't know what I did wrong but the pita bread never rose and I burnt it. And when I fried the Falafel it crumbled into tiny pieces. And so did I. I kind of went into a rampage of anger and started smacking the Falafel down on the plate in an attempt to make it into a beautiful, round patty as shown in the picture above. You've probably guessed it. It didn't work. 

I'm not a perfectionist in the least, but when it comes to my cooking I like it to look just as good as it tastes. (I know. I have a problem). Even though it didn't look very good it still ended up tasting amazing. And super filling. So if you're interested check out the recipes that I used: Falafel and Pita Bread.

So here's to hoping my idea of having a vegetarian meal every Monday goes better than it did today.

  1. There is a really good vegetarian cookbook on clearance at the BYU bookstore right now. I got it yesterday. Full page color pictures of every recipe, which all sound delicious. Can't wait to make everything in there.
