Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine beans, green onions, garlic, parsley, cilantro, lemon juice, cumin, baking powder, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper to taste in a food processor; pulse until mixture is coarsely chopped and beginning to come together.
  3. Form mixture into 8 golf ball-sized rounds. Place on a greased baking sheet; press to slightly flatten. Bake until crispy and light gold, about 18 minutes. Place baking sheet on a wire rack.
  4. While falafel bakes, heat a dry skillet over medium-high heat. Warm pita bread in batches, about 1 minute per side. Transfer to paper towels.
  5. Spread each round of pita with 2 tablespoons hummus; top with two falafel rounds. Top with 1 tablespoon tabbouleh and 1 tablespoon lettuce. Top with 1 tablespoon kalamata olives, a dash of hot sauce, tomatoes and cucumbers. Fold like a taco to eat.
