Tahini Dressing


Rinse soaked garbanzo beans in cold water. Place in a food processor and process until chopped into small pieces, scraping down the sides as needed. Add lemon juice and water; continue to blend until finely ground, almost like a paste.

In a skillet, sauté onion, garlic, coriander and cumin in oil over medium heat for about 10 minutes. Combine all the ingredients except Tabasco sauce or chili powder and coconut oil in a mixing bowl, and mix well. Add Tabasco or chili powder to your taste.

Heat 1 to 2 tablespoons coconut oil in a frying pan. With a small ice cream scoop or a tablespoon, scoop out the mixture into small patties and place in the pan. Fry over medium heat for about 5 minutes on each side.

Serve the Falafel warm in pita bread or a flour tortilla wrap, with Israeli Salad and Tahini Dressing.
