  3. Create the falafel with the premade mi. Use your hands to roll the dough into 2-inch balls.
  4. If using wooden skewers, soak them for 15 minutes in water so they don’t burn. If using mental skewers there is no need to soak.

  6. Heat the grill to medium direct heat. Spray or brush the grill with olive oil.
  7. Grill the kabobs for 8 minutes, turning occasionally so they cook evenly. Cook until the falafel gets a nice crust and the vegetables are soft.

  9. Garnish with fresh parsley, lemon wedges and serve with the tahini sauce.
