Chickpea Burgers and Tahini Sauce

These thick burgers are a mixture of chickpeas, fresh green onions, oregano and smoky cumin with an egg and flour acting as the binders. They are pan-fried in olive oil until they achieve a golden brown crust - these held together surprisingly well while they were flipped. The use of Tahini in the tangy sauce was a first for us and will be seeking out recipes that use it now! There is a generous amount of sauce that matched the large burgers perfectly, but for the picture I only added a small amount. My pitas were also on the small size - we couldn't find the ones we used to get when we made the trek to Trader Joe's.
