1–2 chipotles in adobo sauce (use 2 for a SPICY sauce)
2 tbsp of the adobo sauce
2 medium garlic cloves
2 tsp pure maple syrup or raw honey
1/4 tsp fine sea salt
1/3 cup water, plus more as desired to thin
Begin by preparing the falafels according to the instructions in this recipe.
Make the Chipotle Tahini Sauce: Blend all of the sauce ingredients in an upright blender until smooth. Add more water if a slightly thinner sauce is desired, but I found 1/3 cup to provide the perfect consistency.
Assemble the pita sandwiches: On one side of each pita, place a handful of lettuce, a couple slices of tomato, some red onion, 3 falafels, a couple spoonfuls of tahini sauce, and desired amount of olives and feta, if using. Fold over and enjoy immediately!
