Place the chickpeas, onion, herbs, garlic, flour, cumin, salt, pepper, lemon zest and paprika in a food processor. Pulse the mixture until it is combined and you have coarse crumbs. You want the mixture to have texture, so don’t blend all the chunks away!
Form the mixture into burger patties. Heat the olive oil in a nonstick skillet. Add the falafel patties and cook until golden brown and crispy on both sides, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.
Serve on toasted english muffins. Spread some tzatziki on the bottom of the muffin bun. Add the falafel burger and top with the slaw and pickled onions. Serve!
tzatziki and slaw
Whisk the yogurt, cucumber, dill, garlic and lemon together with a big pinch of salt and pepper. Taste and season more if needed. I like to make this ahead of time and store it in the fridge - it’s so flavorful!
To make the slaw, add ¼ to ⅓ cup of the tzatziki in with the shredded cabbage and toss well. Serve on top of the burgers!
