There are times when I have a recipe idea that I’m so excited about, I obsess over it until it becomes reality. Friends, let me tell you that this is one of them. I’ve loved the concept of Scotch eggs for a long time — I mean, who doesn’t like deep-fried eggs covered in sausage and breadcrumbs? But to up the ante, I decided to pull in my vegetarian friend: the falafel.
The (gluten-free and vegetarian!) result is everything I thought it would be: crispy, herby spiced chickpeas covering creamy boiled eggs, begging to be dipped in a lemony yogurt sauce. They take a little bit of effort, but boy, is the result ever worth it.
