served them with fresh corn on the cob and steamed
fresh green beans mixed 50-50 with garlic scapes (the
flower stalks from garlic bulbs, found in our garden
and also available during the summer at a good produce
market) plus a salad of more fresh tomatoes slices,
small fresh mozzarella balls and fresh basil. Easy
to do on a hot summer evening or any other time of
the year. This was a delicious feast.
Recently I was served delicious falafel patties that were green inside. I duplicated
this at home by adding some parsley to the box mix mentioned above. Here
is exactly what I did:
one of those huge bunches of parsley at the grocery
store. Wash is carefully and spin dry in the salad
spinner. I used half of the bunch, cut off the big
part of the stems to put into my compost pile, put
the leaves in the food processor and swirled to chop
fine. Next I added 1/4 cup water to the food processor
to help chop the leaves even finer. I added this all
to the mixture from the box along with only 1 cup of
water instead of the 1-1/4 cups suggested on the box
were beautiful to look at, delicious, and much moister
than making them straight from the box as directed.
Serve warm in pita bread halves with tomatoes and unflavored
yogurt mixed with diced cucumbers.
