Very Easy, Homemade Falafel with Tahini Sauce

A restaurant favorite gets a DIY makeover with this top-rated recipe for easy Homemade Falafel with Tahini Sauce.
In a moment of nostalgia a few weekends ago, I found myself digging through my massive bin of culinary school mementos—oil-stained notebooks, tattered chefs’ coats, broken vegetable peelers, a paper toque, and buried within a folder of class notes, a recipe for homemade falafel.
Discovering the recipe among the mountains of note cards and textbooks was the only sign I needed to finally get serious about my falafel fix.

I was soon pulsing together cups of tender chickpeas and fresh herbs, and after a quick sauté, my hand was home to a warmed pita stuffed with four bright green patties dripping with cool and creamy tahini sauce.
Very Easy, Homemade Falafel with Tahini Sauce
ingredients:
For the falafel:
  • 2 cups roughly chopped white onion
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 2 cups cooked chickpeas, drained
  • 1 cup lightly packed parsley leaves
  • 1 cup lightly packed cilantro leaves
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • Canola oil, for sauteing
  • Pita bread, for serving
For the tahini sauce:
  • 1 1/4 cups plain yogurt (full fat or non-fat)
  • 1/4 cup tahini (sesame paste)
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
instructions:
  1. Add the onion and garlic cloves to the bowl of a food processor and pulse just until they are finely minced. Remove the mixture and press it through a strainer to release as much liquid as possible then set it aside.
  2. Add the chickpeas, parsley, cilantro, salt, chili powder, and cumin to the bowl of the food processor and pulse until they are roughly blended but not pureed.
  3. Return the onion mixture to the food processor, along with the baking powder and just enough flour so that when you pulse the processor, the mixture begins to form a small ball and is not sticky. (Note: Start by adding ¼ cup of flour, and then the remaining ¼ cup. You can add more if the mixture is still too wet.)
