Falafel and Yogurt Sauce
1 19-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed
4 scallions, trimmed and sliced
2 Tbs all-purpose flour
1 Tbs chopped fresh oregano
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbs extra-virgin olive oil
2 6-1/2-inch whole-wheat pitas, halved and warmed, if desired
1/2 cup low-fat plain greek yogurt
1 Tbs lemon juice
1/3 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
1/4 tsp salt
1 Clove Garlic
1/2 cup cucumber peeled, seeded and cut into 1/4-inch cubes
1. Place chickpeas, scallions, egg, flour, oregano, cumin and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a food processor. Pulse, stopping once or twice to scrape down the sides, until a coarse mixture forms that holds together when pressed. (The mixture will be moist.) Form into 4 patties.
2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add patties and cook until golden and beginning to crisp, 4 to 5 minutes. Carefully flip and cook until golden brown, 2 to 4 minutes more.
3. To prepare sauce & serve: Meanwhile, combine yogurt, tahini, lemon juice, parsley and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Divide the patties among the pitas and serve with the sauce.
