Try this adaptation of the Mid-Eastern falafel for a satisfying and complete protein meal.
Saute onion in 2 tablespoons vegetable oil until soft. Coarsely mash chickpeas with a potato masher or process lightly in a food processor. Add bread crumbs, tahini, tamari and garlic. Mix thoroughly. Stir in sauteed onion, parsley and cooked rice. Form into 8 burgers. Skillet-fry in vegetable oil until browned on both sides. Serve hot with alfalfa sprouts, shredded carrot and tomato wedges. Spoon Sesame Tahini Sauce over top.
Note: Mixture can also be formed into 1-inch balls and skillet-fried or deep-fried. THis size is ideal for use in pita breads. Yield: 8 burgers Posted to JEWISH-FOOD digest by Sandy English <yehudit@...> on May 13, 1998
