Quinoa Masala Dosa (Rice and quinoa crepes with potato filling)

Baked Falafel Salad with a Mint Hummus Vinaigrette

I made baked falafel pita sandwiches last week for dinner on one of the nights and then the left over falafels were perfect for my lunch the next day!  I also decided to make an exotic (a.k.a. exciting) dressing to go with it. I had used lots of mint in my falafels and so I…
