Form the mixture into 1-inch balls or patties and coat with flour. Bake in a preheated 350 F oven for 15 to 20 minutes.
To make a falafel sandwich, cut a piece of pita bread in half and put 2 to 3 falafel balls or patties into the open halves. Add lettuce, alfalfa sprouts, sliced tomatoes, green onions and low-fat Yogurt Dressing or Tahini Dressing.
