“I usually make a batch of falafel and store in the freezer to have on hand for a quick, healthy lunch. I freeze them on trays over wax paper, and once frozen transfer them to freezer bags. When wishing to use them, take the desired amount from the freezer and give them about 20 min to thaw a bit before frying in very hot oil. Some people like to use the end of a pencil to poke a hole in the center of the patty, they say it helps with the crisp. Makes a great sandwich stuffed into a pita with salad type veggies and your favorite condiment. You can skip the sesame seeds but to me, it really makes the falafel! :) hope you enjoy”
