Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Lightly grease a muffin sheet pan with non-stick spray or olive oil.

In a food processor, combine the cooked chickpeas, onion, garlic, parsley, cilantro, and mint. Pulse until the mixture is finely chopped, but not pureed.

Step 4

Using a cookie scoop, divide the mixture into 12 portions and shape each portion into a ball. Place each ball into the prepared muffin sheet pan.

Step 5

Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the falafel is golden brown and crispy.

Step 6

Assemble the wraps by spreading a generous amount of muhammara on each tortilla. Top with the sliced red onion, cucumber, pickled cabbage, fresh parsley, & cilantro, mint, and a dollop of Greek yogurt. Add a pinch of salt and pepper to taste.

Step 7

Finally, add the cooked falafel balls to the wrap and roll tightly, tucking in the sides as you go.
