Make It

PROCESS chickpeas, oats, mayo, onions, garlic, cumin and half the cilantro in food processor until smooth. Shape into 18 (2-inch) patties, using about 2-1/2 Tbsp. chickpea mixture for each. Place in single layer on baking sheet. Refrigerate 15 min.

MEANWHILE, mix sour cream, tahini and lemon juice until blended. Refrigerate until ready to use. Combine cucumbers, tomatoes, dressing and remaining cilantro.

HEAT 1 Tbsp. oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add half the falafel patties; cook 3 min. on each side or until browned on both sides. Remove from heat; cover to keep warm. Repeat with remaining oil and patties.

TOP each pita with 3 falafel patties, about 4-1/2 tsp. sour cream mixture and 1/3 cup cucumber mixture.
