Falafel Sandwich with Garlic-Yogurt Dressing, Lime, Pesto, Spinach and Grape Tomatoes on Ciabatta Bread with Pesto

While we do enjoy making falafels from scratch, it is a lot easier to buy them pre-made. So after an on-the-spur-of-the-moment shopping spree in the local grocery store, we found ourselves with a packet of falafels. They are quite acceptable in taste, a little wet in consistency (it’s not easy to preserve crunchiness after freezing), and overall a good experience. If you have fresh ones, by all means do use them, but for a Thursday sandwich without too much work involved, just get something like these. We find that falafel can be quite a nice change to a lot of dishes, such as salads or on sandwiches (like here).

Falafel Sandwich Recipe

  • 1 slice of ciabatta bread
  • 2 tsp pesto
  • 4-5 leaves of spinach
  • 4 tbs yogurt
  • 1 pinch of curry
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tbs fresh dill
  • 3 falafel
  • 1/4 lime
  • 2 grape tomatoes

Slice the grape tomatoes thinly.

Mince the garlic and blend it with the yogurt. Cut the dill into fine pieces, and add to the yogurt. Blend in the curry  and salt and pepper to taste.

Heat the falafel in either a microwave according to instructions, but preferably in a toaster oven, as if toasting a piece of bread. This gives it back a little bit of crunchiness.

Spread the pesto on the bread, then spinach, yogurt dressing and falafel. Squeeze the juice from a wedge of lime over the falafel, then add more dressing and top it off with grape tomatoes.
