    These are yummy-licious! Fun & Easy to make. Served on a bed of spinach with a lemon vinagrette. Even 2 of my picky eaters enjoyed them.

    Ladies, the printing issue is not that difficult. Using your right scroll bar, scroll down until you see the body of the recipe. Look up top at your tool bar and you will notice a printing, Facebook & share options. To print, click on the printer icon.
    That being said, I am anxious to try this recipe. Sarah, keep up the good work!

    having difficulty printing your receipes......why not make it easier for us to print all them

    OK this part where none of us can figure out how to print is taking away from Sarah's inspiring awesome-ness!! I use her videos as the mini-spa treatment in my day and her stuff is fast, fun, inexpensive, and easy, not to mention yummy. OK back to the part we all want to know - how to print. If you scroll back to the top of the page and then arrow down slowly when you hit the recipe title a new bar will appear in Martha Stewart taupe color with a print icon on the very top right. Good luck

    Made these today with some stale quinoa flour...Not good. And I think the recipe should be 1/3 cup flour instead of 1/2. Sarah says 1/3 on the video. I plan to make them again...And I will be better about tossing old flour out! I will report back and rate them soon. Made the next batch from the EF Crispy Pan Seared Falafel is the best!

    This was delicious and so easy. Even my picky daughter loved them! I used fresh basil instead of the cilantro. I would like to try the cilantro the next time. I also the fritters would be good with some kind of chutney or Indian flavored condiment.

    Sarah, these look so yummy...can't wait to try them! Thanks for the recipe! BTW, there is a little print icon on the gray bar...far right. It took me a while to find it=)

    Like the ease of the recipe and will try tomorrow night. Especially like only 1/4" of oil is used. Also saw a way to print recipe. Don't know if this is new or new to me. If new, thanks. Was ready to unsubscribe due to printing frustration!! Keep up the good work & recipes coming!!
