A few clever cheats make this satisfying sesame falafel salad with tahini sauce quick and easy



  • falafel 3 x 190g tubs
  • rocket 60g bag
  • sesame seeds 1 tbsp
  • tahini 4 tbsp
  • lemon 1 large, plus wedges to serve
  • garlic 1 clove, crushed


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven and bake the falafel following the pack instructions (alongside the meatballs, see recipe right, as they brown).

  • Step 2

    Meanwhile, mix the sauce ingredients with 4-5 tbsp water and some salt until you get a drizzling consistency. It seems like a lot of water, but don’t worry, adding lemon juice to tahini makes it thicken with the acidity, so it needs another liquid to thin it.

  • Step 3

    Once the falafel have been out of the oven a few minutes, and cooled a little, pile the rocket onto a serving platter and top with the falafel. Drizzle over the tahini sauce, scatter with sesame seeds and serve with a few extra lemon wedges.
