Vegetarian Times cooking fest

I tried 2 recipes from the past couple of Veg Times (Sept/Oct 2008).

Falafels. These were good, but could have used some more flavor. Maybe more tahini. I made some tahini sauce to go with them. It was really good. I based it off this recipe, but kept tweaking it to taste.

Chickpea tangine with cinnamon, cumin and carrots. This was good, but I'm thinking it needs tweaking to add more flavor. I haven't tried the leftovers yet. sometimes that improves things. That said, I would make it again. It was quick to make and tasty. The raisins I used were huge.

Kiwi jam. Being a smarty pants, I thought I'd use agave instead of regular sugar. I should have added some pectin because the agave added too much liquid. It took forever to boil down and I got 1 /4 of what I was supposed to and it's not really green. The leftovers that didn't make up enough for a final jar tasted good, though. Very tart. Sort of reminds me of rhubarb marmalade.
