My dog just followed me downstairs and climbed across me to steal the rest of my falafel sandwich. I'm guessing he liked it because it was spicy and salty...it was almost too salty, in fact. The sodium content was something like 25% of what you should eat in a day for just two patties, and you could definitely taste it. Apart from that, it was actually pretty yummy stuff, so could I try counteracting the saltiness with some extra spices?

I used the Near East mix because it happened to be a new product at my grocery store, and the only one of its kind. Are there any other boxed mixes available? I know the people who make the Nature's Burger mix have a falafel mix but I don't recall if it's the same company or what, and I don't know how it tastes. Or, better yet, is there a way to make my own just-add-water stuff to keep on hand? Grind some dried chickpeas and fava beans, throw in some spices?
