For my birthday last week, Ashley and I intended on making falafel. As it fits our vegan needs, plus the needs of my dad's high protein, as well as Sue's wheat and soy free diet. It is always a fun challenge when we all do dinner together.
For whatever reason, the falafel was too wet and I could not get it to form into patties. My dad was going to be at the house soon so I was rushing. I did what I normally do and grabbed a cup of flour and tossed it in. Ashley noticed and mentioned that Sue can not have wheat. I totally spaced it for a second and ruined it.
We tossed it into the fridge and went with plan B, Bar-B Que chickpeas. However, I did pull the falafel out the following day and made them. No reason to waste all that food. We had a nice open faced falafel salad! Recovery!
