Savoury falafel, wrapped in a large tortilla smothered in red pepper hummus, topped with peppery arugula, crunchy cucumbers, tomatoes, onions and drizzled in creamy tahini.
This super quick and hearty plant-based wrap will hit the spot come lunch time. Use any tortilla wrap or even pita bread. For this recipe I went with red pepper hummus (recipe coming soon) but you can use your favourite hummus recipe. Next, I added a handful of arugula, because you know I gotta add some greens, but baby spinach would also be amazing. After that, feel free to add whatever veggies you have on hand. I chose tomatoes, cucumbers and red onions for crunch, but you can also add sliced peppers, shredded carrots and creamy avocado.
To make this recipe super quick and convenient, I used my favourite ready-made veggie falafels from Yves Cuisine. I love having these on hand in the fridge for those busy days, and they’re also great tossed in a salad. I’m going to let you guys in on a little secret, we’ve been working on an amazing homemade falafel recipe in the Healthnut kitchen and I can’t wait to share it with you guys, so stay tuned!!
Now, to finish off this tasty falafel wrap, I drizzled tahini on top for an added creaminess. Using ingredients like hummus and tahini is a great way to add a “dressing” to your salad, or in this case a wrap! Who needs mayo, am I right? Once you’re ready to “wrap” your falafel wrap, make sure you close them at both ends and wrap them as tight as possible. You can place the wrap in a reusable silicone storage bag or wrap it in bees wrap and pack it for lunch.
