Edamame Peanut Falafel with Peanut Yogurt Sauce Recipe

Originally given to me by a friend associated with the Southern Peanut Growers, this meatless entree makes a tasty change of pace. The golden get a nice crunch from the peanuts and the spicy flavor complements the tangy yogurt dressing. —Barbara Martin, Tuscaloosa, Alabama
