Falafel Patties with Tahini Sauce

I never knew what falafel was until I searched the Internet for chick pea recipes. Yeah, I'm pretty hopeless, you know. It did cross my mind to make hummus but I thought falafel sounded much more interesting.

And to be honest, ever since I bought that one can of chick peas, I've been wondering what to do with it!

Mash it up.
Mix the onions and spices in.

Instead of balls, I thought I'd make patties instead.

Most recipes call for tahini sauce to go with falafel. Again I had to find out what on earth was 'tahini sauce'.

Sesame paste and olive oil.
But first, I had to make the sesame paste.

From paste to sauce.

Add in the olive oil.

The recipe called for parsley flakes but I had none. So I substituted it with mixed spices. =P

Baked falafels!

Looks authentic enough, don't you think? ;)

Well, I didn't have pita bread so I made very thin omelette wraps instead.

I can't wait to make some more!

But this time, I have dry chickpeas instead, which will require soaking. =S
