Falafel W/ Avocado Spread - Veggie Burgers W/ Guacamole

READY IN: 21mins
Recipe by mikey ev

from Cooking light. A Latin twist on the classic Middle Eastern sandwich. Serve in halved pitas, garnish with microgreens and sliced red onion. **This is by no means falafel, but they are tasty! I suggest turning on the hood, these steam up quite a bit. Cooking Light says this makes 4 servings, but realistically it's 2 :)

Awesome! Only change i made was adding some hot pepper flakes. They are slightly crumbly but if you don't fiddle with them while they cook they hold together. My new favorite sandwich.
