To make the falafel

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F, and pour half of the olive oil onto a baking sheet to cover the bottom of the pan.
  2. Place all falafel ingredients into the bowl of a food processor and pulse for 15-20 seconds to fully combine all of the ingredients into a chunky, slightly crumbly batter.
  3. Use wet hands to form the batter into about 8 patties that are each roughly 2 1/2 inches wide and 1/2 inch thick.
  4. Place the patties in a single layer onto the oil-covered baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes, carefully turning the falafel over halfway through the cooking time.
  5. Remove, and let cool for a few minutes.

To make the tahini lemon dressing

  1. Add all dressing ingredients, except the water to a small mixing bowl and whisk well to combine. If the dressing looks too thick then add in the water to thin it out. The consistency should be slightly thick but thin enough for drizzling.

Build your bowl

  1. Divide the spinach between two bowls and layer in an even amount of veggies into each bowl. Add the falafel to each and sprinkle in some of the pistachios.
  2. Drizzle on the dressing and enjoy!!!!
