  • 15 oz canned chickpeas
  • 1 medium Yellow Onions
  • 1/4 cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
  • 2 garlic clove
  • 3/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 3/4 tsp Ground Coriander
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp Organic Ground Cayenne Red Pepper
  • 1/4 cup Parsley
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp Tahini
  • 4 whole-wheat English muffin
  • 2 cups Purple Cabbage Chopped
  • 2 tbsp LEMON Juice, Fresh Squeezed


1 Preheat the oven to 400°F. Add the chickpeas, onion, flour, garlic, cumin, coriander, salt, and cayenne to a food processor. Pulse until mixture resembles lumpy hummus. Stir in the parsley.
2 Form the mixture into four balls; place onto a large unbleached parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Pat with your fingertips into four (4-inch-diameter) patties. Brush the patties with 1 tablespoon of the oil. Bake for 30 minutes. Gently flip over each burger, brush with another 1 tablespoon of the oil, and bake until crisped, firm, and well browned, about 10 minutes more.
3 Thinly spread the tahini on the cut surfaces of the English muffins. Place each falafel burger patty on the English muffin bottoms. Toss the cabbage with the lemon juice and add on to the burgers. Add the English muffin tops. (Hint: Additional suggested toppings include hot sauce, bread-n-butter pickle chips, and tomatoes.)
