Pickle the onions
In a medium pot, bring 1 cup of salted water to a boil (double for 4 portions). Peel, halve and thinly slice the onion. Add the onions to the pot of boiling water and cook, 2 to 3 minutes until beginning to soften. Thoroughly drain the onions and transfer to a heatproof bowl. Combine with ½ the vinegar; season with ⅓ of the spice blend and S&P. Set aside to pickle while you complete the next steps.

Small dice the cucumbers. Core and small dice the pepper. Finely chop the parsley and cilantro leaves and stems. Pick the mint leaves off the stems and finely chop the leaves; combine with the parsley and cilantro. In a medium bowl, combine the cabbage with ½ the remaining vinegar; season with S&P to taste.

Cook the burgers
In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Using your hands, form the falafel mix into 2 patties of equal size (double for 4 portions). Place the patties in the pan and cook, 2 to 3 minutes per side, until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a plate and set aside in a warm spot. Wipe out the pan.

Toast the buns & serve
Add a drizzle of oil to the same pan on medium; add the buns cut sides down and toast, 1 to 2 minutes, until golden brown. Divide the bun bottoms between your plates. Top with the green tahini sauce, cooked falafel burgers, slaw, a spoonful of the chopped salad, remaining pickled onions and bun tops. Serve the remaining chopped salad on the side. Bon appétit!
