But I'd love for Boo to eat more of it, because it's a healthier alternative to chicken nuggets and meatballs and hotdogs. I had been thinking of ways to use the cute little ice cube molds I bought last time I was at Ikea. I wasn't sure how falafel mix would work in them, but it seemed worth a try.
I smooshed the mixture into the molds making sure to fill every nook and cranny.
Then I froze them for a few hours, figuring I'd never be able to pop the falafel out otherwise. And maybe this was a mistake, but I did not level them off because I wasn't sure how they'd freeze and it seemed safer to have some excess on the edges in case I needed to pry them out of the mold.
They came out of the molds easily when I turned them upside down and flexed them a little. The hearts weren't too interesting. I did appreciate that this was the first time I made falafel balls that were all a uniform size and shape, though.
I liked the starfish much better. Incidentally, they looked good to Boo, too. He ate only part of one, but said he liked it. The Mister and I ate ours in pita bread with tomatoes, lettuce, onion, and ranch dressing.
