Extremely bland if you stick to the recipe and eat them alone but a good base for your own falafel and great in a pitta with extra dressings and salad. Try doubling the amount of spice and adding lime or lemon juice.

Made these today for lunch, added a little lime juice and extra garlic. Also chilled in the freezer for 15 mins before shallow frying. Served them with home made hummus on pitta bread with salad and sriracha sauce. Absolutely delicious and will definitely make again. Better than anything you will find in the shops/supermarket. My husband couldn't stop eating them, even though they are filling!

Yeah - really not good. Far too much flour, just tasted like flour to me. Really bland. Sounds like I've been doing something wrong but I followed the recipe completely.

I love these as make them all the time. Tasty, cheap and healthy. I usually make 8 small ones and we have 3 each and then someone gets the leftovers for lunch so I wouldn't say serves 4 but easily scaled up. I always use coriander instead of parsley and a good heaped tsp of Harissa. You don't have to fully blend for a chunkier texture and if the mixture is too dry add a little water, although I might try lime based on another comment.

I thought it was a bit dry. But nice for something healthy. Not sure will make again. Have made worse falafels.
