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...

This recipe was a big success to me because i have tried to make veggie burgers in the past and they have not come out very tasty. So i gave this recipe a try and i found out it worked quite nicely. I made it without the tahini sauce and the spices and put it on a slice of ezekiel bread and it was still tasty! it was just a little bland though, but i might try to add my own blend of spices. Overall a very good recipe! Great job!

This one is in our regular rotation as well. To help form the patties, dip hands in water, spoon mix into hand, squish into shape, and place on square of wax paper. Then you can move them into the pan (or fridge to firm up) without directly touching them. Plop upside down in pan, then peel off wax paper. Instead of tahini sauce, we do a raita with lowfat plain yogurt, ground cumin, salt, fresh mint, chopped seeded cucumber, and quartered grape tomatos. Have yet to see a 19 oz can of chickpeas. Usually open two cans and reserve the leftovers for salads.

One of the few things I've ever made to turn out just like the picture. They were delicious... and the sauce went perfectly with them.

This recipe can't be right -- i made as directed and the mixture was so wet that i couldn't form a patty of any sort. After two attempts at frying them in olive oil, adding more flour after the first, i threw the batter away. Now i am wondering what to make for dinner...
