Rather than a heavy, fried falafel, here's an updated version of this pocket sandwich: a light chickpea patty served in a whole-wheat pita with a flavorful but light tahini sauce.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Fine recipe; my wife especially liked the sauce. I made the patties and refrigerated them overnight; they never appeared to be falling apart, so the cooling/resting time probably helped. I am far from being a vegetarian, but was quite...

I thought these burgers were great. I didn't find them bland, I just added a little bit more salt. Before I cooked them, I put the mixture in the freezer a bit and wet my hands before forming them and that helped a lot. When I made the sauce I used Greek plain non-fat yogurt and I added a bit more lemon juice. Overall a great meal! And my dad even liked them who would never consider something vegetarian.

fast and easy to make

I thought these burgers were great! Super easy to make and not many ingredients. I love the flavor the scallions gave it. When I ate mine, I put dill pickles on it to give it some more crunch and it was really good. I will definitely be making these again very soon.

This recipe is a good starting point. I added grated garlic, finely chopped bell pepper, and smoked paprika. Enjoyed the flavor. The texture was a little smoother than I was hoping for. Would have liked a little more bit.

healthy, easy

Easy to make, mine stayed together fine. Although I did not have a food processor, I just used a potato masher and a wooden spoon, so that might have had something to do with it. I skipped the scallions and oregano but added about 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder and cayenne pepper along with a bit of fresh ground pepper. I couldn't be bothered making a sauce so instead used a Greek yogurt and cucumber sauce I found at the grocery store. I put the patty in a whole wheat pita with some lettuce and topped it with the sauce. I served it with a side of semolina and fresh beet salad. It tasted great! I will definitely make this again.

Really quick and easy to make!

really liked this recipe. luckily for me i tasted the burger mix before i fried it and found it bland so added some old el paso spice mix and stuffing mix i had at hand. the tahini dip tasted a bit odd at first so had to add a bit more lemon juice and pepper. once the burgers are tasted with the tahini sauce they were both fine and tasted great together! would definitely make this again.

doesnt take long to make
