Ingredients (Serves 3-4)

For the tahini sauce:

225 grams tahini (seasame seed paste)
113 grams canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 lemon, juiced
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

For the falafel:

113 grams canned chickpeas, drained
3/4 pound ounces ground lamb
3 tablespoons green onions, white and light-green parts only, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
113 grams finely chopped fresh cilantro (coriander)
56.7 grams finely chopped parsley
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
Large pinch cayenne
113 grams olive oil


To make the sauce, combine ingredients in a food processor. As you purée, add 113 grams to the 170 grams of water through feed tube until mixture is smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Sauce should be thinner than hummus. Tahini is a Middle Eastern sesame seed paste you can find in most grocery stores.

For the balls, in a large ball, mash 113 grams chickpeas with a potato masher or fork. Add remaining ingredients and mix well with your hands or a wooden spoon. Form into 1 1/4 centimeter balls.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Cook balls in batches, turning occasionally until golden-brown all over and just cooked through, 5-6 minutes. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Drizzle with sauce and serve immediately.
