We just had a massive Greek feast for Memorial Day. I have tons of falafel mix (from scratch) that I am cooking up today. Does anyone know how well they freeze?<br><br>
Also, I have a bunch of baba ghanoush left. Does it freeze well?<br>
TIA!

I don't know about the baba ghanoush, but Falafel freeze really well if you package them properly <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">.

But falafel is not a Greek dish, it is a Middle-Eastern one; people here do not even know what a falafel is <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"><br><br>
I used to eat falafels in Middle-Eastern restaurants in the UK but cannot find them anywhere here so I miss them so much!<br><br>
But yes, you can freeze falafels, I used to buy them frozen as well from the grocery store in Britain.

That's ok. I live in rural Texas (aka hicksville), and some of my guests wouldn't have known the difference. Baklava isn't necessarily Greek either, but I made it and no one argued, lol. It was the best baklava I've ever had, too! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
Falafel is soooo easy to make. Why don't you make it yourself? I both baked and fried mine and honestly, no one could tell which was which! I used the recipe off of dedemed.com, but added some egg white to help it bind. I just drizzled the falafel w/olive oil before baking and they were crispy and so yummy.<br><br>
Thanks for the input.
