A Lightened-Up Middle Eastern Classic
The much-loved fast food falafel is, by definition, vegetarian; it's usually made from ground chickpeas, fava beans or both. But this version is lighter than most because it's baked, not deep-fried. A hot oven turns the patties golden and crispy, and they're a terrific fast supper when tucked into a pita with sliced cucumbers, tomatoes and a dollop of plain Greek yogurt.
