Falafel with Avocado Tahini Dressing

I love these!!!
2 cups cooked chickpeas
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/3 cup cooked quinoa
2 tbsp. cilantro
1 tbsp. cumin
1/4 tsp salt  or to taste
1/4 tsp pepper
2 vegan eggs (Ener-G egg replacer)

Pulse the chickpeas in a food processor until no more whole chickpeas remain.
Heat 1 tbsp. oil in a frying pan on medium heat and fry the onions and garlic until soft.
Combine chickpeas, onion mixture, quinoa, cilantro, cumin, salt, pepper, and egg mixture.
Form the mixture into 12 balls, and flatten slightly
Heat the oil in a frying pan on medium heat. Add the falafel patties and cook for about 3 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned
Serve with dressing, either straight up or in a pita with lettuce and tomato
