Easy Falafel Wrap

Posted on May 20 2017 - 4:49pm by Mirtha Mabel Carpio

This recipe is more like a puzzle putting the pieces together than actually using your cooking skills. Takes only a few minutes and makes a filling and healthy meal.

I personally like to do most of my grocery shopping in Trader Joe’s because you can find most items pre-prepped for you. However, many of the ingredients can be found in your local super market. Hummus is in every refrigerator aisle and falafel can be found in the freezer aisle. My favorite wraps and breads are Ezekiel brand that are usually found in the freezer aisle. They are a great source of plant based protein and fiber that keep you full longer.

You know I’m saucy!

No meal is complete without some sauce. My refrigerator is full of all kinds of sauces that I mix into homemade seasonings to give everything a good kick. My hot sauce of choice is Sriracha and in this case I also added store bought chimichirri sauce. The cilantro and falafel mixture made for a bite full of robust flavors. I love adding broccoli slaw or sprouts to sandwiches to give it a good crunch but feel free to add lettuce, cucumber, carrots, or any of your favorite vegetable mixture.
