Falafel with Tahini Sauce

Yield: 4 servings

Prep: 5 min

Cook: 30 min

Ready: 35 min

  • 1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed

  • 1 small onion, finely minced

  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 3 tablespoons chopped parsley

  • 3/4 teaspoon lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon coriander

  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric

  • dash red pepper

  • salt and pepper, to taste

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil

  • Arugula, Roma tomatoes, cucumber and onion for garnish

Tahini Sauce
  • 3/4 cup sesame tahini

  • 5 tbsp. fresh lemon juice

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 cup water, more if you want a thinner dressing

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  1. Pulse the garbanzo beans in the food processor until well-chopped, but do not over-blend or you'll begin to get hummus. Mix the beans with all but the last two ingredients.

  2. Form into golf ball sized patties, flatten a bit, and either fry in the grapeseed oil or bake them in a 375 degree oven until golden brown, flipping them over about halfway through the bake.

  3. Serve atop the garnish for a salad, or you could make falafel lettuce wraps. Drizzle with the Tahini Sauce.
