DIRECTIONS

  • CUCUMBER DRESSING: Mix vinegar, dill, onions and pepper in a bowl.
  • Add cucumber slices and marinate overnight.
  • Drain; discard liquid. Stir in yogurt. Makes about 4 cups; more than enough for the sandwiches.
  • FALAFEL PATTIES: Preheat oven to 350ºF. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • Microwave potato for about 3 minutes; cool, peel and mash with a fork. Set aside.
  • Heat oil in skillet over medium heat and saute onions, jalapeno and garlic till soft; about 3 minutes. Stir in parsley and saute another minute.
  • In a large bowl, combine beans with onion mixture; mix well.
  • Stir in mashed potato, yogurt, paprika and lemon juice.
  • Form into 24 patties using 2 tablespoons mixture for each. (It's easier to spoon 2 tablespoons on baking sheet and form into rounds).
  • Place patties on baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes; turn patties over and bake for another 10 minutes.
  • Assemble sandwiches by placing 2 patties in each pita half. Top with lettuce and 1 tomato slice. Serve with cucumber dressing.
  • Serving = 2 pita halves with 4 patties and toppings.
