Step 1

For the falafel sliders:
Set aside 1/4 cup chickpeas for the avocado hummus. Place remaining chickpeas, onions, garlic, tomatoes, parsley, cumin, coriander, salt and flour in a food processor and pulse until combined, stopping frequently to scrape down sides. Using the palms of your hands, form mixture into four 3-inch round by 1/2-inch thick patties.

Step 2

In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat and pan-fry patties in batches, letting cook about 3 to 5 minutes on each side, until nicely browned. Do not crowd the pan. Remove from pan and drain on paper towels. Set aside.

Step 3

For the avocado hummus:
Combine remaining 1/4 cup chickpeas, avocado, parsley, oil, garlic, lemon juice, salt and cayenne in food processor and puree. Adjust seasoning to taste. Set aside.

Step 4

For the tahini sauce:
Puree tahini, water, garlic, lemon juice and salt until smooth. Set aside.

Step 5

To serve:
Layer the falafel sliders, avocado hummus, tahini sauce and sliced tomato, lettuce, and onion on the buns.
