Falafel Sliders with Tahini Slaw


  • 6 falafel patties (Fedora Food Famous Falafel Dough premade mix is a great shortcut)
  • 6 slider buns or 3 pita pockets
  • 6 tomato slices
  • 1/4 cup Heinen's original hummus
  • 1/2 cup red cabbage, shredded
  • 1/2 cup Heinen's tahini
  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup fresh greens (a mixed greens blend is great)
  • Fresh parsley, for garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick spray.
  2. If using premade falafel dough, scoop out the desired amount and form into 2-inch patties.
  3. Place on the baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  5. Mix the tahini sauce, water, lemon juice, garlic and salt in a medium-size mixing bowl.
  6. Add the cabbage to the tahini sauce and mix well. Set aside.
  7. While the falafel bakes, lay out the buns or pita pockets. Spread a thin layer of hummus on the bun.
  8. Place a tomato slice, handful of greens and tahini slaw on top of the hummus.
  9.  Once the falafel is done baking, remove it from the oven and let cool.
  10. Once cooled, add the falafel on top of the slaw and top with a bun.
  11.  If you have extra tahini sauce, drizzle that over the falafel before putting the top bun on.


  • Feel free to get creative with additional garnishes such as feta cheese, Kalamata olives, cucumbers and green onions.
