A delicious middle eastern dish, perfect for a quick and healthy meal!
  • For the Falafel
  • 1.5 cups canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 4 tbsp flour of choice (chickpea, wheat, almond, oat)
  • 1 cup of parsley and cilantro
  • 1-2 tbsp of tahini
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tbsp olive oil plus more for cooking
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds, optional
  • Salt and pepper
  • For the Garlicky Tahini Sauce
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 1/4 cup of water, or more until desired consistency is achieved
  • the juice of 1 lemon or lime
  • small handful of cilantro
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 tsp of liquid sweetener (agave, honey, etc.)
  • 1/2 cup of chopped cucumber
  • Toppings
  • 2 cups shredded red and green cabbage
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrots, optional
  • 1 cup of toasted chickpeas
  • 1/4 cup packed cilantro and parsley, for garnish
  • 1/4 cup Diced red onion
  • 1/2 cup Chopped cucumber
  • 4 pita wraps, warmed for serving
  1. In a food processor (or high-speed blender or stick blender), combine the chickpeas, flour, parsley, tahini, cilantro, garlic clove, olive oil, cumin, salt and pepper. Process until evenly combined. Once combined, roll the falafel dough into small flat patties and roll into the sesame seeds.
  2. In a hot pan on medium heat, add 1 tbsp olive oil and add the falafel patties. Cook each falafel on each side until golden brown, about 2 minutes each.
  3. While the falafel is cooking, blend the Garlicky Tahini Sauce ingredients (except the cucumber) in a food processor or blender until evenly combined. Add the chopped cucumber and mix well.
  4. Once the falafel is done cooking, transfer them to a plate. In the same pan, add the chickpeas and turn the pan to medium-high heat. Cook until lightly golden, about 2-3 minutes.
  5. Warm the pita and serve the falafel warm mixed with shredded cabbage, carrots, toasted chickpeas, fresh herbs, onion, chopped cucumber and drizzle in Garlicky Tahini Sauce. Yum!

    This looks so good!! I’m not the biggest fan of tahini (probably haven’t eaten a really good one) but I love falafel.
    Going to try this tahini sauce and see who it goes.

    Lots of hugs, A

    Sounds delicious! I love eating falafel! If you want to make it even more authentic, use dried chickpeas (that have been soaked overnight) instead of canned. 🙂
