We received a link for a recipe from our friend @Analovebug for a Falafel Sandwich. Give it a try and let us know how it tastes.
what you need
2 cans (15 oz. each) chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/4 cup KRAFT Real Mayo Mayonnaise
1 small onion, coarsely chopped
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped, divided
1/2 cup BREAKSTONE’S or KNUDSEN Sour Cream
2 Tbsp. tahini
2 tsp. lemon juice
1 cup chopped English cucumbers
1 cup chopped seeded tomatoes
1/4 cup KRAFT Greek Vinaigrette Dressing
2 Tbsp. oil
6 whole wheat pita breads (6 inch)
PROCESS chickpeas, oatmeal, mayo, onions, garlic, cumin and half the cilantro in food processor until smooth. Shape into 18 (2-inch) patties, using about 2-1/2 Tbsp. chickpea mixture for each. Place in single layer on baking sheet. Refrigerate 15 min.
MEANWHILE, mix sour cream, tahini and lemon juice until well blended. Refrigerate until ready to use. Combine cucumbers, tomatoes, remaining cilantro and dressing.
HEAT 1 Tbsp. oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add half the falafel patties; cook 3 min. on each side or until browned on both sides. Remove from heat; cover to keep warm. Repeat with remaining oil and patties.
TOP each pita with 3 falafel patties, about 4-1/2 tsp. sour cream mixture and 1/3 cup cucumber mixture. Serve immediately.
