Lemon Tahini Sauce:

4 tbsp tahini

Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
Combine ground flax seeds with 4 tablespoons of warm water.
Let sit for about 10 minutes to gel.
Blend the muesli in a food processor or a high speed blender until ground into fine flour.
Add cooked chickpeas, roughly chopped beetroot, garlic, flax gel, cumin, coriander seeds and sumac. Whizz to a rough paste.
Using damp hands, shape falafels and place them on the baking tray.
Bake for 30 minutes, flipping halfway through.
The falafels should be crispy on the outside.

Lemon Tahini Sauce:

In a small bowl, whisk tahini, lemon juice and salt.
Keep whisking until the sauce becomes bright and thick.
Check the consistency and if you think it’s too thick, add 2-3 tbsp of cold water and whisk.
Check the seasoning and refrigerate until ready to use.
