      Falafel IS Lebanese ;-) There are versions of it all over the Middle-East, but the Libanon is it's birthplace (homous: same story) As it was -and is- very basic food, all frills are omitted. Beans, cumin, parsley, salt, served with flat bread. Sometimes some tomatoslices, but that's it..

      Very, very nice! I made this for the family tonight~my son is vegan, and introduced this to us about 2 years ago. We have falafel parties now! I really like the garlic and red chili pepper addition. The two flavors stood out, but remained smooth in flavor. Perfect! I browned these quickly in a skillet, and finished warming in my minature oven. Thanks, Jubes! Delish-O.
