Ingredients
  

  • 9 falafel balls
  • 3 pitas
  • 6 tablespoons tahini sauce
  • 1 cup tzatziki sauce
  • 3 tomatoes
  • 2 cucumbers
  • 1 bunch fresh parsley
  • 1 handful mixed greens
  • 3 tablespoons vegan butter or oil

Instructions
 

  • Heat 1 tablespoon of butter in a small pan and toast a pita for 1 minute on each side. Repeat the same for each pita.
  • Wash and slice tomatoes, cucumbers, and herbs.
  • Cut the pita into halves to form pockets. If your pita is small, cut one of the edges crosswise.
  • Spread some tzatziki sauce inside each pita. Then pack it with falafel, veggies and herbs and drizzle tahini sauce on top. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Falafel pitas are best eaten fresh while the vegetables are still crisp, the bread is toasted, and the falafel balls warmed.
  • Store any ingredients separately in their own containers in the fridge for up to 3 days. The pita bread can be left on the counter for that time.
