My falafel burger is two crispy chickpea patties tzatziki sauce, cheese, tomatoes, cukes, onions, sprouts, and hummus on a brioche bun. It's a delicious meatless mouthful that's so much healthier than a fast food burger.
Divide the falafel mix into 4 1/2 cup portions and gently roll into balls. Place the balls between sheets of waxed or parchment paper and flatten. You can use a heavy cast iron skillet, or even a tortilla press! Keep chilled until ready to fry.
Lightly coat the bottom of a nonstick skillet with oil. Heat until hot and then, working in batches if necessary, fry the burgers until crispy and browned on the first side. Then flip (gently!) and cook until browned and crisp on the second side.
Spread a layer of tzatziki on the bottom of four buns.
Top with your falafel burger patties.
Add your cheese ~ I like to use 2 slices of extra thin pepper jack.
