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
salt&pepper
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
salt&pepper

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)
