Coming to a pita near you!
Fresh herbs can add a wonderful depth of flavor to any dish, and falafel wraps are no exception! Here's a recipe that highlights the use of fresh, homegrown herbs to create a delicious and healthy meal.
small onion, roughly chopped
fresh mint, chopped
large pitas (for the wraps)
Greek yogurt (for the wraps)
muhammara (for the wraps)
red onion, thinly sliced (for the wraps)
cucumber, thinly sliced
pickled cabbage (for the wraps)
parsley, chopped (for the wraps)
cilantro, chopped (for the wraps)
mint, chopped (for the wraps)
salt, pepper, and sumac
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.
In a large bowl, mix the chickpea mixture with the cumin, coriander, salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, flour, baking powder, and olive oil. Mix well until everything is combined.
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.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the falafel is golden brown and crispy.
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.
Finally, add the cooked falafel balls to the wrap and roll tightly, tucking in the sides as you go.
Serve immediately and enjoy your delicious and healthy homemade falafel wraps!
