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 but you can use your favourite hummus recipe. Next, I added a handful of arugula, because you know I gotta add some greens! Baby spinach would also be amazing in this wrap. After that, feel free to add whatever veggies you have on hand. I chose tomatoes, cucumbers and red onions! 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. There is a delicious homemade falafel recipe in The HealthNut Cookbook, so pick up a copy for the recipe!!

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 wrap! Who needs mayo, am I right? Once you’re ready to wrap it up, make sure you close it at both ends! Another tip: wrap it as tight as possible. Then it will stay together if you’re bringing it to school or work! You can place the wrap in a reusable silicone storage bag or wrap it in bees wrap and pack it for lunch.
