Falafel Waffle with Israeli Salad Recipe


Serves 4

1 16 oz box of Falafel Mix

For the Israeli Salad:

6 Cucumbers, diced

4 Plum Tomatoes, seeded and diced

5 Green Onions, sliced

1 Red Bell Pepper, seeded and diced

1/3 C Garlic, chopped

1 C Fresh Parsley, chopped

½ C Fresh Mint Leaves, minced

½ C Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2 T Fresh Lemon Juice

Salt and Pepper, to taste

For the Tahini Sauce:

2 T Tahini Paste

1 T Hummus

4 T Lemon Juice

1 clove Garlic, minced

¼ C Water


For the Tahini Sauce, combine everything in a blender until smooth, and slowly pour in water until you have a consistency that is thin enough to drizzle on a plate, being careful not to make it too thin.

To make the Israeli salad, toss the cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, bell pepper, garlic, parsley, and mint together in a bowl.  Drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice over the salad and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper.

Make the falafel mixture according to package instructions. Fill a hot waffle maker and cook until it is crispy enough to be taken out of the waffle iron, about 4 minutes. Cut each waffle into 4 pieces. 

Put two pieces of waffle on each plate, along with a scoop of Israeli salad and shredded lettuce. Drizzle with the tahini sauce and serve with pita chips.
