Sometimes Experiments Work...

Last week I made this roast in the crock pot with tomato juice and wine and few herbs. I was left with a ton of broth. I put the broth out in the garage overnight. Due to the cold weather, the fat congealed at the top, making it easy to get rid of. I made black bean soup with the broth. It came out great. But thats not why I am writing. Its really only to say that sometimes I get lucky and my experimenting comes out good. Other times, well...

Take for example my falafel yesterday. This is probably the sixth time I have tried to make falafel. I am sorry to say that no matter what I do, deep fry or bake, egg or no egg, it always comes out terrible. It's funny because i have tried several recipes and a lot of them are similar yet I can not duplicate what we get in the restaurant. Not even close. so if anyone out there knows the best way to make falafel, I would love to know.

Thank you, I appreciate that. You are the first person at my site. Where is your site? I would like to see it.

Great site Lori! Maybe try freezing your falafel patties before frying them? I too have attempted to make falafel as I love it. I end up with a big greasy mess. Now i just order it at my favorite vegitarian resturant.
