Falafel with orangy veggies and yoghurt sauce [Aug. 16th, 2007|10:40 pm]
I actually forgot I had this cooking journal, but when I stumbled upon it the other day, I decided to post some recent experiments. Hope you enjoy this - it was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!

Falafel with orangy veggies and yoghurt sauce

I cheated with the falafel, and just used ones from the store - still yummy!

2 carrots
2 spring onions/leeks
1 handful sugar snap peas
1/2 red bell pepper
some oil
about 1 dl orange juice

Sauté all the veggies in a bit of ghee/oil for a few minutes. Add orange juice and let it all cook while you heat the falafel. The orange juice should mostly be gone by the time they are done. I like my veggies slightly crunchy, so I didn't cook them for all that long.

plain yoghurt
flat leaf parsley
sweet red chili sauce

For the yoghurt sauce, mix plain yoghurt, lots of fresh parsley (flat leaf) all chopped up and some sweet red chili sauce. Season to taste.

Enjoy! :) </cut>

I haven't been on LJ for a while, so I forgot I had friended you, but I'm glad you started posting again- that looks delicious! Of course, I was hoping to find the secret to good falafel in this post because every time I've tried making it, it's been a disaster. Even though it felt like giving up, I'd actually bought a box mix to use, though I haven't tried it yet. I'll be ok with using a mix if it comes out as delicious as yours looks ; )

ooh, also the veggies look totally yummy! I've kind of stopped cooking veggies cuz I'd fallen in a rut with them, but now I'm inspired to go make some delicious veggie goodness :D

oh, so sorry the falafel secret wasn't in this post. I will certainly post it when I come upon it ;) I have to admit I usually cheat with falafel... These were good though (but I will be trying to make some in the future)
