MoFo #3 - Falafel Sliders
This is the first recipe where I've marked some notes in the margins of Chloe's Kitchen. I love falafel, so I knew I wanted to make the falafel sliders featured in the book. I didn't really care for the tahini sauce, since tahini is a little bitter. The avocado hummus tasted a little salty right after I made it, but it was fine in the leftovers. I also only used 1 tsp olive oil in the hummus, just enough to get the food processor going. These are small issues, not a complete recipe failure. I used white wheat dinner rolls, since I couldn't find wheat slider buns. I also soaked my own chickpeas and cooked them in my little slow cooker for several hours. I always cook my own beans for recipes, because it's cheaper and less salty than using canned beans. I served these with tots and some mixed veggies (a freezer staple for a meal that needs a quick veggie side).
