What do you eat this with and what does this taste like? i have some in the dehydrator but not sure what to expect.

We eat it with salad and it is yummy! Usually, about 1/2 of is eaten before dehydrating or during the process.

OH boy.. making more of this tomorrow! It is soo yummy to me! I take my falafel balls and put them in a romaine leaf with a bit of tomato, avocado and sprouts. I use a teeny dash of Braggs and pinch of cayene and YUM... eat it right up!!!! It is my version of a Veggie Falafel Rider! I have made two batches of these already since being back on raw for a week! :D
Hope yours turn out yummy and that you find a great way to eat them!

I made some raw salsa so i might dip them in salsa. That may sound odd but listening to you talk about the tomatoe and avacado and lettuce i thought that sort of sounded like this might be good with salsa. We shall see. I hope they turn out good. I am a little chicken or impatient to try some of the receipes that require sprouting lentils and stuff so I hope this can become a staple. I have been eating some raw meals from purerawcafe out of dallas the past two days to help me stay raw. I have made it two days but will be out of my pre made raw meals tomorrow night. So need to learn to make some yummy stuff like was sent to me.

OH I LOVE Alissa's falafel,
I put them in the onion brea, with some fresh slices of tomato, white onion, and cucumber, and some shreaded lettuce, I make a tzasiki dressing or tahini and lemon and garlic, and mmmmmmmmm can't keep them in the house. yummy

I just put my first batch of these in the dehydrator and can't wait to try them. Don't know what took me so long to finally get around to making them! I'm glad to see some ideas of how to eat them as I wasn't sure other than just eating them plain. I think the romaine idea with some tomato, avocado and some type of dressing will be great!

I don't think I've ever even had COOKED falafels...so I really don't know what to expect. Are they some kind of meat-less meat substitute/patty-thing (talking of the cooked ones) or are they supposed to be like "hushpuppies" or how would you describe them?

They are a bit like hush puppies in the sense that they are little round fried balls but I would say they are more of a meat substitute. They are often used as a sort of meaty item rolled up in pita bread with turnips, lettuce, onions, tahini and anything else you want to toss into the pita. When I was cooked, I would go to this takeout place called the Falafel King and get one of their "kings." It was four falafel balls with tahini, lettuce, turnips, and hummus all wrapped tight in big pita. It was cheap and delish. I will eventually try Alissa's recipe. Lately, I've been all about the whole food and juicy fruits. They are also served as is on plates with veggies.

Drawn gave a great description of the cooked version. I used to love them and had a little place in downtown Seattle where I could get them in my cooked vegetarian days. They are really greasy and for me hard to digest.
I just had some of the raw version a few minutes ago and wow this recipe is a keeper! I'd serve these to SAD eaters and don't think they'd notice much difference between the raw and cooked version except the raw are better!
Just put them in romaine leaves with some avocado, a sprinkle of Nama and some tomato sauce left over from another recipe and wow... anyone who hasn't tried these really should, one of my favorites recipes now!
