Falafel burgers with yogurt-tahini sauce
Falafel patties served in lightly-toasted whole-wheat buns with fresh lettuce leaves, slices of tomato and red onion, and a dollop of yogurt-tahini sauce.

1 x Falafel recipe (to make 6 falafel burger patties)
6 tablespoons olive oil, for frying
6 whole-wheat hamburger buns—halved
A few handfuls of lettuce or mixed salad leaves—washed and shaken dry
12 thick slices of tomato

½ red onion—sliced and separated into rings

Yogurt-tahini sauce

½ cup plain Greek yogurt
2½ tablespoons tahini (sesame seed paste)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1½ cloves garlicminced
¾ teaspoon salt

MAKE the falafel mixture using our Falafel recipe. HEAT the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. SHAPE the falafel mixture into 6 burger-size patties. FRY the patties for 5 minutes on each side until golden brown. WHILE the patties cook, mix together the yogurt, tahini, lemon juice, garlic and salt in a small bowl until well combined. LIGHTLY toast the burger buns. TOP the bottom half of each bun with some lettuce, a falafel patty, 2 slices of tomato, and a few slices of red onion. SPREAD equal amounts of the yogurt-tahini sauce on top and cover with the bun tops.
