Falafels With Tahini Sauce

Falafels are one of my favorites, made from garbanzo beans, either the dried beans soaked and ground up in a food processor or from the can or there is a packaged type in the healthfood aisle of the grocery store. I have found that when making them from the dried soaked state they are crispier – as the canned beans are already cooked and tend to be somewhat mushy. This homemade recipe does take a little bit of time but it is well worth the effort. There is plenty of protein in falafels – 8 grams in a 1/4 cup serving (from the garbanzos). Shaped into patties or formed into balls, falafels can be served as an appetizer with dipping sauce, as a main meal or stuffed into pita pockets , loaded with veggies and drizzled with sesame tahini sauce for a healthy nutritious sandwich.

1 medium onion chopped
3 cloves garlic minced

6. For the Tahini Sauce
