This month’s daring cooks challenge wasn’t completely new for me. I had made hummus in the past and loved it. The challenge recipe was even better than the one I used before! The pita bread was actually very good. Mine aren’t as perfect looking because I really didn’t bother making them into a round shape. I guess they look more home-made that way.
The falafels were my great failure. I’ve never tasted falafel before, so I have nothing to compare them to, but I’m sure they’re not meant to turn out the way mine did. They were like bread biscuits with a spicy flavor, you could barely eat one on it’s own. They looked as they should be opened up and spread with butter. I really don’t know where I went wrong either so I think I won’t be making those again.
You can find the recipe at the daring kitchen recipe archive.
The 2010 February Daring COOKs challenge was hosted by Micheleof Veggie Num Nums. Michele chose to challenge everyone to make mezze based on various recipes from Claudia Roden, Jeffrey Alford and Naomi Dugid.
