Falafel, a popular recipe from the Middle East, consists of seasoned pureed chickpeas that are shaped into patties and usually fried. It's worth the effort to seek out Greek yogurt, which is thick, rich, and creamy. Make the sauce up to three days in advance and the falafel mixture up to one day ahead; bake falafel patties just before serving.
You know what I love about these burgers? They're a team effort. I'm able to mix a few simple ingredients together and pass the bowl along to my husband to make the patties and put them on the grill. A big mouth burger with a hint of smoky spice to it.
