The ultimate in light fast food, Middle Eastern falafel have become a universally adored comfort dish, which uniquely manage to bridge the gap between healthy and delicious fare. Learn to make best-ever falafel with tips and tricks, and this creative collection of recipes for fried, baked, and full on falafel meals. Falafel are an ancient Middle Eastern food originally made with fava or chickpeas (garbanzo beans), which are crushed and mixed with herbs and spices and molded into patties. They are then traditionally served in pita bread pockets with salad and dips such as hummus, tzatziki, or tahini sauce. The rest of the world have since caught on to the delights of falafel, and chickpea patties have steadily been becoming the darlings of vegans and vegetarians, picnic goers, festival food trucks and supermarket delis since the early 2000s. It’s not hard to see why: quick, easy and inexpensive for home-cooks to make, they also fall into that wondrous overlapping category of being crave-worthy and satisfying (up there with fries and other such savory morsels) as well as nutritious and fairly low in fat. What’s more, chickpeas are a brilliant source of protein for those who don’t eat meat. They are rich in fiber, as well as nutrients manganese and folate. But the health benefits don't stop with chickpeas—modern falafel are often made with added vegetables, nuts and seeds, lentils, or other grains and legumes, as are many in this book. In the Fried section try the Fennel & Lemon Scented Falafel or Juicy Brown Rice Faux-lafel. In the Baked chapter find Crunchy Sesame Falafel or Falafel Croquettes. The Raw section offers snacks such as tasty Mediterranean Seed Falafel, which are packed with good stuff, and very low fat. For something more substantial try curries, casseroles, burgers, and salads in the Meals chapter. Lastly, whip up Sauces & Dips such as Spicy Avocado or Home-made Tahini Sauce in the to perfectly complement your patties.The savory taste and filling texture of falafel means they are great in a wide range of dishes. Falafel forever is for the falafel-obsessed as well as people who are new to trying this delicious dish in all its various forms.

At a time when cynicism masquerades as wisdom and fundamentalism as religiosity, Moses the Hertic offers a much needed antidote. It asks the questions, ""What would a Biblical Prophet look like in the 21st century? How might he fight to change our world? And how would the world as we know it fight right back at him?"" In the character of Rabbi Moses Levine, Spiro portrays what the Biblical Moses might be like were he active today. Like his contemporaries, Moses Levine is no miracle worker. He must cope with the limitations of his humanity. A tireless and impassioned worker for equity, truth, peace and environmental stewardship, Moses enjoys tremendous success but at the cost of an ever-growing set of enemies desperate to destroy his reputation and legacy.

Garry Thomas Morse deploys his prodigious classical repertoire to compose the edgy new voices that reflect the cultural simultaneity of our everyday?a transnational, ahistoric cosmopolitanism: an idealized Helen is confounded by Molly Bloom's monologue from Joyce's Ulysses; a Dostoyevskian character parodies the libidinal excesses of William Burroughs with ?the stone that drives men mad” from Pauline Johnson's Tales of Stanley Park; an incident from The Book of Judges answers one of Gogol's riddles; an acidic response to the recent fascination with ?speculative fiction” introduces a punch card system from the year 2088 in which future language facilitates only business transactions in a completely monetized world; and F. Scott Fitzgerald's alcoholism hits rock bottom in the unfulfilled desires of a dry pub crawl. All of these stories seem to sketch the details of immediately recognizable places, but reveal a luminous interiority we never dreamed might be (re)discovered there. Transparently rooted in the work of other authors, including Garry Thomas Morse's contemporaries, they nevertheless defy critical terms such as ?intertextuality” and ?authenticity.” Since his mother's people (the Kwakwaka'wakw) became disconnected from their traditions there has been a great deal of forgetfulness of the ?dream-time” that used to exist in our everyday lives?this forgotten ?theatrical madness” of the human condition is what Morse seeks to re-present. The title story of this brilliant collection of avant-garde fiction, loosely based on The Picture of Dorian Gray, Thomas Mann's Doctor Faustus, and the film Death in Venice inverts the post-modern textual convention that only the author's voice can be considered authentic. Its main character?the artist Padam, who is no more ?fictional” than the author?constantly interrogates the accuracy of his representations, whereas we know almost nothing about the narrator, who exists merely as the ?subject” of the Padam's portrait and an ?object” of his reflection.
