MAKE the falafel mixture using our Falafel recipe. HEAT the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. SHAPE the falafel mixture into 6 burger-size patties. FRY the patties for 5 minutes on each side until golden brown. WHILE the patties cook, mix together the yogurt, tahini, lemon juice, garlic and salt in a small bowl until well combined. LIGHTLY toast the burger buns. TOP the bottom half of each bun with some lettuce, a falafel patty, 2 slices of tomato, and a few slices of red onion. SPREAD equal amounts of the yogurt-tahini sauce on top and cover with the bun tops.
