Happiness in a handful, these taste as good as they look. Your tastebuds will love you for it!


Place all the tomato salsa ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine. Set aside.
Whisk all the tahini sauce ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
Heat a large frying pan on medium heat. Meanwhile chop patties roughly into quarters and roll into balls or just cook as chunks. Add olive oil and heat. Fry the balls in batches until golden brown.
Place the lettuce leaves on a plate. Place hummus, salsa and Happy Patty pieces inside and drizzle with tahini sauce.

Alternatives: Replace the lettuce with toasted pita breads for a more filling option. Replace the tahini with 1/4 cup of yoghurt to create a yoghurt sauce.

You can also make this with other Happy Patties for a bit of variety or try the Amaze Balls which are rolled and ready to go!
