Sweet Potato Falafel Pitas with Tahini Sauce (Slow Cooker)

Sweet Potato Falafel Pitas with Tahini Sauce (Slow Cooker)

falafel FG

I do love a good falafel, but I don’t want to mess around with frying.  And I thought the sweet potato flavors would go wonderfully in a falafel, so these guys were born.

Wrapped up in a pita with fresh crunchy veggies, and drizzled with a delicious tahini sauce (don’t skimp on the tahini sauce), these are so fresh, flavorful and delicious!  And guess what?  Mr. I-don’t-eat-vegetarian-food (Ben) didn’t miss the meat at all.  He said he was full but not over-stuffed.  WIN!

So.  Some notes about these falafels.  They don’t have the same texture as a deep-fried authentic falafel.  They are much softer.  I actually did try shallow frying them (actually the falafels pictured were shallow fried), but I recommend baking them for the following reasons: a) healthier b) better texture on the inside of the falafel c) easier d) the pan-fried ones never really got crispy.  And what’s the point of frying if they’re not crispy?
