Falafel Sandwich w/Tzatziki, Hummus, and Tahini

Using Pain de Campagne to hold the falafel instead of pita bread may go against the grain, but you be the judge. How to make a falafel is another recipe. Here we will use pre-made falafel. I buy mine that is made from sprouted garbanzo beans because sprouts provide boosted nutrients. You can find this at Whole Foods. Pre-made falafel may be frozen or fresh, and they look like mini patties. Prepare them according to the package instructions.

While frying, baking, or microwaving the falafel, toast the bread slices. Take a bowlful of ready made spring mix salad, which usually come in bags or those hard plastic bins, and are usually pre-washed. If you prefer to make your own, then mix some baby lettuces, greens, and radicchio in a bowl. Stir in a dollop of packaged tzatziki (I get the Cedar’s brand), which is made of Greek yogurt, chopped cucumbers, garlic, dill, white vinegar, and oil. Shred a carrot or two, if you wish to add to the salad.

Before assembling the sandwich, slather one slice of bread with hummus (homemade or store bought), and the other slice with tahini. Next, take the salad mixed with tzatziki (with or without the shredded carrots) and place however much you want on the slathered side of one slice of bread,  follow up with four or five falafel pieces, and cover them with the other slice. Have a good chomp.
