DIRECTIONS

MAKE THE FALAFEL BURGERS

  1. Drain, thoroughly wash, and reserve the chickpeas for use. Mince the following ingredients in a food processor: onion, garlic, parsley, and cilantro.
  2. To create a coarse mixture, add the remaining ingredients, including the oil and chickpeas.
  3. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the breadcrumbs and sesame seeds. Add enough crumbs to create a soft dough-like consistency. As the dough chills, it loses some of its stickiness.
  4. After chilling for 20 to 30 minutes, taste the mixture, adjust the heat, tang, flavor (and, if desired, add more spices), and salt.
  5. Make patties, then cook them for 6 to 7 minutes on each side in a heavy bottom skillet at medium heat.

MAKE THE DRESSING

  1. To make the tahini dressing, combine everything. Adjust salt and tang according to taste. To make the dressing thicker or thinner, add more tahini.

ASSEMBLE

  1. Assemble the burger by adding pickles, tahini dressing, chopped tomatoes, onions, lettuce or greens, and falafel patties. If desired, include some hot sauce. Serve! I frequently spread hummus on top as well.
