Juicy vegan falafel burger in a pretzel bun served with creamy tahini sauce and crispy and tender sweet potato fries. The best falafel burger I’ve ever had!
What about an irresistibly juicy vegan falafel burger with soft pretzel bun and creamy tahini sauce? That’s all I need now, in the beginning of the barbecue season. The best part? Although you can make it on the grill, it’s totally possible to enjoy it at home as well! That’s what I did actually – just fried falafel on a frying pan. Right after I made these falafel burgers I bought a grill pan and I bet grilled falafel would taste great as well. So take out your grill pans, get your pretzel buns ready, and let’s make these falafel burgers right now!
I have a confession to make. I made four mini burgers and a big batch of sweet potato fries and it was supposed to make four servings. My husband and I ate it all without leaving a single piece left! I know, we shouldn’t have, but we were hungry. In fact, I don’t even regret doing it. It was so delicious! Just as amazing as a vegan falafel burger can be: juicy falafel patties, crispy from the outside and tender from the inside, topped with the creamiest and the richest tahini sauce, lots of veggies, salty pickles (made by my mother-in-law), placed between halves of amazingly soft pretzel bun slices with a firm crust. Add crispy and tender sweet potato fries tossed with Middle Eastern spices to this, some homemade hot sauce, some jalapeno and you are good to go. I would call it an ultimate vegan burger because it is, believe me. If your mouth is watering right now, you got it right. You have to make it as soon as you can.
How to Make Vegan Falafel Burger with Tahini Sauce and Sweet Potato Fries
I won’t say it’s one of these 30 min meals you would usually find on my blog. Nevertheless, you can make it significantly faster, if you do some prep work in advance. Remember my baked falafel with hazelnuts? That’s a base for these burgers. Just make a big batch of falafel, either in form of balls or patties and freeze everything you can’t eat at once. This would cut the cooking time for these falafel burgers in half! The rest is pretty easy: bake your buns and sweet potatoes, make the tahini sauce, slice the veggies, fry your pre-made falafel (or don’t if you’ve just baked it) and that’s it! For tahini fans out there, make a double batch. Believe me, you won’t regret it. So, here is the recipe for my ultimate vegan falafel burger with tahini sauce and sweet potato fries. Enjoy the barbecue season! 😉
