This is one of those recipes that came about when I realized I didn’t have what I needed for my originally planned dinner. And it’s definitely staying on the dinner rotation.

Prepare the Falafel Arayes
Yield about 15 mini arayes
In a food processor, process garlic and shallots. Add remaining ingredients (excluding extra oil to brush and tortillas). Pulse until a rough course mixture is formed.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes (not absolutely necessary - I skipped this step once).
Fill each tortilla with about two tablespoons of falafel mixture, fold in half and flatten. Brush both sides of tortillas with some olive oil.
To cook, I used a panini press, but you can also grill on each side until nicely browned in a grill pan or a regular pan.
You can make these in larger tortillas or in pitas - they'll be equally delicious.
