This is a fun meal from Moosewood's Lowfat Favorites. The cookbook says this makes a lower fat substitute for felafel (which I love) - I don't know about replacing felafel, but these are good for their own sake. I added a bit more spice to the mix than the recipe called for - more cumin and a touch of cayenne - and next time I'll probably add even more - so feel free to season them however your family will like it best! Prep time does not include cooking brown rice.
