    Steps

    1
    Done

    Preheat oven and prepare mixture

    Preheat oven to 400°F. Bring all falafel ingredients to a food processor and mix well but still allow some texture. You do not want this too runny or smooth. Roll small balls and place on a cookie sheet. Gently press each one so they are slightly flatter and cook more evenly. Cook for about 25-35 minutes or until golden, flipping halfway.

    Done

    Blend your dressing

    Blend all ingredients for your dressing. Add salt to taste or a drizzle of olive oil to thin it out a bit.

    Done

    Fill your pitas!

    Cut your pitas in half and fill with falafel and veggies. Drizzle with the dressing and enjoy!
