Falafel Pitas with Tahini Sauce

Hello and happy Sunday! {ad}

You may remember the #grillitarier campaign by Migros, which is all about celebrating summer and firing up the barbecue. I shared the following vegan bbq recipes in collaboration with Migros last year:

And today I’m delighted to share this super simple recipe for filled (or topped) pita breads, using the falafels from Cornatur. It’s an easy way to turn these chickpea-based bites into a satisfying summer dish (serves 4).

Ingredients:

  • 4 pita breads
  • 1 packet falafels (I used these)
  • 130g plain soy yogurt
  • 3 tbsp tahini
  • 1 pinch of salt (I used the chili sea salt from Migros)
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 bunch coriander, chopped
  • fresh arugula
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • pomegranate seeds

 

Method:

  1. For the sauce: combine the yogurt, tahini, lime juice, salt and ca. 3/4 of the coriander.
  2. Cut the pitas open half way on the sides and dab some water onto both sides.
  3. Grill the pita breads on both sides while also cooking the falafels on the grill.
  4. Either fill (or top) the pita breads with the tahini dressing, washed arugula, falafels and sliced avocado, topping with pomegranate seeds and the rest of the coriander for extra flavor. Enjoy!

This recipe embodies my personal Grill Rule: Always dress to impress 😉 A tasty dressing and extra little garnishes are what can take simple ingredients to the next level.

Do you have a grill rule or tip to share?

  1. Looks divine Celine! I love bbqs but I don’t really like eating much meat, your dish above looks so delicious 😋. I so need to try bbq vegan burgers like Eat oumph and meatless farm. Your pita bread falafel looks super as well and I can’t have soy yogurt cma I change the yoghurt to another yogurt? Your blog is so inspirational and super photography. The food you make and try makes me drool even for a non vegan like myself. I enjoy veggies and fish xxxx Hope you are having a good week and so sorry I am late reading your blog. Just catching up on your new blog posts 🤗🌱xxxx
