I chose this mix for its ingredients (fava beans, chickpeas, etc) and for the ease of preparation according to the instructions.

As another noted, using less water might be a good idea. I used 3/4 of a cup instead of a full cup from the start just in case. Within 30 minutes, it seemed to have been a wise choice. Although, if one has too little water, one can always add more, and if one has too much, one can add more of the mix.

I decided to bake them and maintaining a sphere was not a goal. The shape does not matter. They seem to be inclined to form patties, but they do retain their shape when cooking (and slightly expand). I baked them at 400 for a time I do not remember (until small cracks formed on the surface) and ate them according to my preferences. They taste great, and have a good texture (when baked at least) and I put the extras in the refrigerator and ate them later, and they were good even cold.

I did not feel it was necessary to add anything to the mix to improve it. If I were to add something, it would be fresh onion.

Falafel, particularly this mix, is good for a variety of purposes. One could for religious, moral, or health reasons avoid eating animal derived foods, and this would provide a great healthy filling food to fill any void left by the avoidance of meat. And although I have never had "fake meat" and never had the desire too, this is probably much better because it is its own food, rather than attempting to imitate another.

I took a gamble on ordering a pack of 6 boxes of something I've never used before and there was a good outcome. I am glad I have the six boxes and when I finish them, I'll likely get more of this.

This is really easy to use: a cup of the falafel mix, a cup of water, mix, wait 30 minutes and then fry or bake. The directions say to deep fry; however, we haven't done that -- just pan fry in some olive oil and flip like a burger. We've served it in pita bread with plain yogurt, cucumber and veggies and it is delicious, nutritious and filling.

Excellent falafel mix. Spicy, but not too spicy, and contains just fava beans and chickpeas while some other brands leave out the fava beans and add wheat flour. The instructions say add 1 cup water to 1 cup mix but that's too much water. 3/4 cup water is more reasonable. You can always add more water if it's too thick.

My wife and I eat this once a week, as our vegetarian dish, oh, it's vegan per se, I just add yogurt. Tastes as authentic as you can get, short of making your own, in the blender! A cool cucumber salad wets the crispy Falafel perfectly. If you want quick Falafel, this is it!

We love this falael mix, and we have tried several different brands. The texture is excellent (though the instructions on the box are a little shady - just add water slowly until you reach your desired consistency), and the spice level is spot-on. Great deal on Amazon compared to what we have paid in specialty stores for this product.

I've bought other falafel mixes and this one is decent, but not the best. Most mixes take about 15 minutes to thicken after water is added. This one takes at least 30 minutes. Even then, it might not be thick enough. I have broiled the falafels rather than deep frying, so the fact that they are "wetter" than most falafels is actually a good thing since they don't get dried out. The falafels do taste great.

These are wheat free and quite tasty. I baked them and they didn't hold their sphere shape very well. It worked better for me when I made large patties. My purchase arrived quickly.

Excellent Taste. I didn't mind the wait to allow the mix to soak up the water and I used the exact recipe on the box. At first it looked like they were going to be too wet but I scooped out 1/4 cup of mix and dropped it into a Calphalon skillet with a little olive oil over medium heat, then pressed it down with the bottom of the measuring cup. After that side browned, they were easily flipped and the final product was perfect!
