Best served when you have friends over, I suspect. If I cooked this, I would eat the whole thing unless I had some competition!

Carina @ veggie gourmet kitchen.wordpress.com said...

What a great idea!

Isobelle said...

Such a neat idea!

I was starting to having withdrawals from lack of Vegan Stoner new recipes ...but the wait was totally worth.
This is such a clever way to enjoy falafel without the need of deep-frying.
As usual, you guys are awesome!

Knives said...

Oh my gosh, I should totally try this!

Banana Wonder said...

donatella said...

Marina said...

I love your recipes! :)

lea said...

Genius! Can't wait to try this.

Caitlin said...

considering the fact that i LOVE all things chickpea- hummus, socca, falafel..this pie looks amazing! i've never seen falafel mix before though, so i will definitely be keeping an eye out for that next time i am food shopping.

Hi,

What size baking pan did you use? A typical pie plate? Trying to judge how much 1c mix will make. Thanks!

BEN LIU said...

The Awfull Falafel box art makes me so happy :D Thank you for making vegan cooking fun again (not to mention simple)!

Leah said...

Kristiina said...

Brilliant! I'm going to try this.

thebearandtheblackberry said...

Ohhhh yesss! We are definitely going to make this soon ;)

What an great idea! :o)
Should it be baked twice? Or, just the falafel-layer?

The Vegan Stoner said...

Hi Anonymous. We didn't bake it twice — but let us know how it comes out if you do!

Wow this looks sooo good!
I love this blog!! Please keep the recipes coming next time some fucktard asks me "So what do you eat, salad?" I'm just going to direct them to this site. :)

Michelle Johnson said...

I just tried the boxed falafel mix for the first time a few weeks ago and really enjoyed the flavors. I would have loved a baked alternative but I don't know enough to guess these things. I will be making this! Thanks so much.

My homemade falafel attempt was a huge fail!

Keeley said...

Not a vegan, but a friend of mine is vegan and directed me to this site and OH MY GAWSH I love it. Just made this pie and crammed it in my gob as fast as I could. Om nom nom. SO delicious. Thank you so very much. =)

Hi mitchfree — our comments don't allow images, but we copied/pasted your link and really enjoyed it. Here's a link for everyone else who wants to see your stopmotion of the making of a falafel pie: mitchfree's falafel pie

Keeley said...

That was cool!

It's Carmen said...

Oh my heavens. This sounds absolutely divine!!

I made this recipe last night,and we ate the left overs tonight,it was even better,we ate it on a pile of baby greens and it was so easy on a busy night. I will be making this again with a few of your other easy and very tasty looking recipes!

thejoyofveganism said...

I tried this and it was AMAZING! A wayyy better way to eat falafel without the frying :)

Annette said...

Num. Just made this -- a definite hit. I will add red onion next time, but that's just me. I really enjoyed it, thank you for your great blog!

GiGi said...

I'd crawl across the desert for this falafel pie. Does it come with water?

I am in love. This is my new favorite blog!

Great blog...thanks.

Sooo I wonder what would happen if you tried using pita bread as like a "crust" base for this... You think it would work or possibly burn on the bottom?

Anonymous said...

No, I make pita pizzas all the time! It definitely wouldn't burn as long as you keep the oven temp under 400

carolyn toldi said...

I tried this... I really thought the base would crumble but it didn't .. wonderful and thank you !

Ang said...

love love love the site!

Dawn said...

So, I made this and it tasted wonderful but my base was nothing but crumbly. Yours looks almost cake like. Mine did not hold together at all. Maybe I got old mix. I purchased it out of the bulk bin. I know I measured correctly. Is there a certain brand that works best? I would definitely make this again with a different falafel mix.

Ange said...

LOVE. THIS. SITE.

Just the Goods said...

Awesome idea, and I love the illustrations, too ;-) Awful falafel... hahahahhaa!

wittieknittie said...

So, this site is totally rad, and this dish looks to-die-for good. I can't wait to give this baby a try.

crucible of good intentions said...

totes awes. also, added shredded carrot, but could use any raw veggies....next time i would lightly out the pan, mine stuck a little but.......

GiGi said...

My husband just made this, delicious but not as good looking as yours. Major shoutout and link to your blog on my blog

Thanx so much.

Vegan Katie said...

I WANT TEN OF THESE IN MY MOUTH AT THE SAME TIME! This looks amazing. I can't wait until I have grocery money again...

Anonymous said...

Brilliant! Will be making today to take to a party; but I have a feeling the real party will be in my mouth; can't wait to eat it! YUM! Love your recipes and graphics!

Nicole said...

Just made it and it is awesome and so simple. It seems usually if its vegan its a pain in the bottom to make, but this site offers so many easy recipes. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Lovercash said...

I have made this recipe twice in the past two weeks and it is incredible! I'm not a vegan but looking for ways to incorporate more vegan meals into my diet so thank you for the simple ideas. Please make a t-shirt - I would definitely buy one.

Anonymous said...

Oh my God. This was so good! So much better than I could have ever even expected! Yummmm thanks so much!!

Melissa N said...

Does this taste good cold?

Katherine said...

I just bought everything I need. I can't wait to make this and devour every last bite.
Thank you for this!

T. Ward said...

I'm an Orthodox Christian and we have a vegan fast 2x per week. This is perfect fasting food. Thanx for the recipes I can't wait to try more. Two thumbs up!

jennilee said...

Any tips for it not crumbling when you slice it and remove it from the pie pan?

The Vegan Stoner said...

jennilee,

Using a triangle-shaped pie server will probably pull the slices out much cleaner than forks and knives.

jleecooper31 said...

Just found your blog. Love the simplicity. Adding to bookmark stat.

Mariel said...

Super, super fab!

Caitlin said...

This was good, but my pie was completely crumbly. It did not set at all. I think next time I'll try another type of falafel mix and maybe mix in some fat to help it stick together. Even with it being a crumbly mess, it was quite tasty

foodbeforebrains.com said...

Nice one; Love your work!

Casey said...

Hmm...mine was good, but looked NOTHING like yours. What size baking dish did you use? I used a 9" round stone baker. I also used greek yogurt instead of soy yogurt, and my topping was sooo runny. :/ Still tasted good though!

Daisy said...

Great recipe. I had no left-overs. The kids inhaled it. LOL.

Anonymous said...

Falafel as pie crust, way clever! I tried this tonight and it's super tasty. I gotta work on the cucumber "yogurt" tho. Mine was pretty runny. Thanks for sharing the great idea.

Cindi said...

Made it tonight.....Delish! I used vegan sour cream instead of soy yogurt. Very tasty....Thanks for the recipe :)

Anonymous said...

this was delicious. i didn't have any yogurt, so i just mixed veganaise with deliciously dill seasoning and had a little bit of that on the side.

Dr. Patrice Carter said...

OMG! I'm SO glad I found you!

The Vegan Stoner said...

Hi Casey,

We used a 9" pie pan as well, however we may have baked it longer and we really packed it down tight.

Try adding a little flour next time to the falafel mix to harden it a little more. Try placing the yogurt and some vegetables in a blender then blend till thick.

Hope this helps.

selina.aliens said...

I think I would let the falafel mix sit mixed with the water for at least 15 min before baking it. That way it would be less crumbly and easier on the digestion.

Ok, I perhaps should try it first before commenting, oh well...

Adrienne Ponce said...

excellent idea! I always hated rock hard falafel balls...this puts it to much better use!

Chris A said...

Great recipe, thanks! Had I read the comments first I would have known to pack down the falafel mixture into the pan and set before baking as mine was crumbly. So, I improvised. Imixed up the crumbly falafel with the hummus and spooned onto dish, and then topped with chopped cucumber, tomato and olives. No soy yogurt on hand, so I topped with a dollop of soy sour cream and the whole thing was attractive and delicious. Thanks for your recipes!!!

Faith S said...

I made this for my meat-eating bf and he LOVED it! He insisted that we have to make it again and again. And again. Thanks so much! I never would have thought to bake falafel.

mehdi zaidi said...

Last week, I have tried Falafel for the first time in my life at Mediterranean Restaurant in Chicago “I Dream of Falafel” and believe me it was outstanding no words to describe the taste of that Falafel.

Thanks for sharing this recipe I must try by myself :-)

kzingher said...

I can't wait to make this! I love your blog. Totally beautiful and fun and well done. And delicious.

Rebecca @ Love at First Book said...

I tweaked this recipe a little bit but I love love love this recipe! Instant favorite!

jonathan said...

I made this for my family last night. Everyone loved it. Awesome recipe!

Rachel said...

Made this the other night. Put feta on half of it for the non-vegans, and it was wonderful. Everyone loved it, except my little "anti-falafel" daughter. :) Will definitely be making it again and again - what a simple recipe. Thank you!

mykl_s said...

Good stuff. Made last night. Believe it or not our WF did not have soy yogurt so I had to use coconut yogurt and make my own falafel with the chickpea flour from Red Mill (just used the recipe on the side of the bag). Delicious! Love your site.

Madeleine Gerber said...

wonderful! I will got to make ist too.

Dom Holmes said...

Just much bloody hommus mate

Anonymous said...

Soooo we used too much yogurt I guess so we just thickened it with saltines ...

Mo Ben said...

Made this last night and it was delicious! Used coconut yogurt instead and it worked like a charm. Thanks for the recipe, I will be making it again and again :)
