Falafel Fattoush

A Middle Eastern bread salad gets the sheet-pan treatment. And you get all the flavors of a falafel wrap--spiced chickpeas, creamy tahini sauce, and pita--without the frying.

  • 3 ½ cup cooked chickpeas or two no-salt-added 15-ounce cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed

  • 1 onion, cut into large chunks

  • 5 garlic cloves, peeled

  • 2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt

  • 2 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander

  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 2 large pita rounds, split and torn into pieces

  • 1 tablespoon ground sumac

  • ¼ cup tahini

  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt, plus more to taste

  • 6 cup torn romaine lettuce

  • 1 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley

  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved

  • 4 large pickles, coarsely chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. On a large rimmed baking sheet, toss together chickpeas, onion, garlic, 2 tablespoons olive oil, cumin, 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, the coriander, and cayenne. Roast until onion and garlic have started to soften, 15 to 20 minutes.

  2. Scatter pita on top of chickpeas, sprinkle with sumac, and continue roasting until pitas are crisp and onion and garlic are very soft, 8 to 10 minutes.

  3. Remove from oven and fish out garlic (to use in dressing); cool.

  4. For dressing: In a small bowl, mash roasted garlic. Whisk in tahini, lemon juice, 1/4 cup water, and 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt. Season to taste.

  5. Toss chickpea mixture with romaine, parsley, tomatoes, and pickles. Drizzle with dressing. Serves 6.
