While we always advocate cooking from scratch whenever possible, sometimes that’s just not possible. This can be due to time constraints, lack of equipment, or even lack of know-how.

In this falafel wrap recipe, you’ll notice I used my homemade falafel patties. A simple enough recipe you can make even without a food processor.

That said a storebought falafel mix can easily be substituted if you’re not quite ready to make your own falafel from scratch.

Homemade Falafel Wrap Recipe

Falafel wraps are great because they are a delicious plant based meal option that you can make ahead of time, and then quickly put together.

Even if you don’t have wraps, (as this recipe calls for) you can substitute naan bread, or whole large iceberg lettuce leaves to wrap everything into one tasty bundle.

To make this falafel wrap you’ll need:

  • 12 homemade falafel patties or balls – pre-cooked and cooled
  • 1 medium tomato – sliced
  • 1/2 English cucumber -sliced
  • 1/4 red onion – julienne
  • 4 large pieces of pita bread
  • 1 cup Tzatziki sauce
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch cracked black pepper
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley – chopped
