  • For the Tahini Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup water
  • For the Salad:
  • 1 Romain heart, chopped
  • 4 radishes, sliced
  • 2 roasted beets, diced ( you can roast them at home, see instructions here or use store bought, such as Love Beets )
  • 2 carrots, shredded
  • 2 vine ripe tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 Hass avocado, sliced

  1. To prepare the Falafel:
  2. Preheat oven to 400F. Generously spray a mini muffin tin with cooking spray
  3. Drain the soaked chickpeas. Combine all ingredients, except olive oil in the food processor. Pulse a few times until all the ingredients are well combined, but not completely smooth. Transfer to a bowl, add olive oil and mix well
  4. Using your hands or a small ice cream scoop and working with approximately 1 1/2 tablespoons, form small balls and place them in the mini muffin tin. Bake at 400F for 15 minutes
  5. To prepare the Tahini Sauce:
  6. In a small bowl, whisk together tahini, salt and lemon juice until it thickens
  7. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time and mix until well incorporated. For thinner sauce, add more water one tablespoon at a time. Refrigerate until ready to use (note: sauce will thicken slightly when refrigerated)
  8. To assemble the salad:
  9. Place lettuce on the bottom of 2 salad bowls. Add 3-4 falafel balls per bowl and the rest of the salad ingredients. Top with tahini sauce and sriracha, and serve with za'atar pita chips on the side
