Falafel has such a prominent taste, but the tahini and freshness of the vegetables really complement it nicely.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until heated through, 8 to 10 minutes.

  • While falafel bake, whisk tahini, water, lemon juice, garlic, and paprika together in a bowl.

  • Cut about 1 inch from the top of each pita to form a pocket. Add 2 falafel to each pita with equal amounts lettuce, tomato, cucumber, pickle, and red onion. Drizzle each with about 1 tablespoon tahini sauce and some harissa.

Cook's Note:

You can use any hot sauce you like in place of harissa.

While the dill pickle is not an ingredient I have had alongside falafel in the past it is fresh and delicious and very good in this recipe. Easy to make and yummy! My only regret is purchasing store-bought frozen falafel and not making it myself (easy!) but in a pinch it's a fine shortcut. Very good! Read More
