“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 :)”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. **To prepare patties** Place pinto beans in a medium bowl; partially mash with a fork.
  2. Add cheese and next 5 ingredients (through egg white); stir until well combined.
  3. Shape bean mixture into 4 (1/2-inch thick) oval patties.
