My Falafel Recipe

I think the world may benefit from my Falafel wrap recipe, so I am posting here. I don't exactly have the measurements correct as I usually eye ball it, so you will have to bear with me.

  • 1 box Falafel mix
  • Olive/Canola oil
  • 1 stalks of green onion
  • 1 stalks of fresh parsley
  • 2 tomatoes
  • A small jar of dill pickles
  • Tahini
  • All spice
  • Coriander
  • Large container of plain yogurt (tzatziki sauce can be substituted)
  • Either 16 wraps or 8 pitas
Follow the directions on the box of falafel for preparing the falafel mix. Once you have a mixing bowl full of uncooked falafel mix, scoop the falafel into a pot of hot olive/canola oil. Leave the falafel balls in the oil until they turn a light golden brown and move them over to a plate full of napkins. Set the falafel aside.

Cut the parsley and green onion into little pieces and set aside.

If you got pitas, either rip them in half so that you have two half circles (pita pockets), or remove the two outside pieces so that you have two (pitawraps) circles. Spread the tahini and sprinkle the coriander and all spice on each pocket/wrap. Put a slice of tomato and dill pickle in each pocket/wrap. Put about 1 - 3 falafel balls into each pocket/wrap. Then add a generous amount of scallions and parsley. At this point you may be stuffinf your pocket.

Lastly, add the plain yogurt or tzatziki sauce and enjoy! I usually only add the yogurt if I'm about the eat it. It's not good to store the wrap if it already has the sauce.
