Falafel With Tahini Sauce

45 mins (prep 30, cooking 15)
24 ingredients
16 servings
Adapted from The Splendid Table's online newsletter. Light and fluffy, my husband said if he could eat this at every meal he'd be happy as a vegetarian. I make the sauce first, then the falafel. Serve on a plate with the sauce as part of a Middle Eastern meal, or stuff into a pita with vegetables and dress with sauce. We like this with Bulgur Wheat Salad - Turkish Style.
