Hot, crispy falafel is a great way to make Meat-free Monday inviting for the whole whānau. We love mixing up the fillings of the wraps to suit our favourite ingredient combos.
1 beetroot, grated
¼ red cabbage, thinly sliced
4 cups baby spinach
1 tin chickpeas
1 tsp cumin
2 cloves garlic, crushed
¼ cup flour (or gluten free flour)
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
A large handful of coriander
4 Rebel Bakehouse Sourdough wraps
1 pot of hummus
Fresh herbs – we love dill & coriander
Makes 4 wraps
Takes 30 mins to make
In a medium mixing bowl add the beetroot, cabbage, the juice of half a lemon, a drizzle of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to combine.
Place all of the falafel ingredients in a food processor and blitz until well combined. Use your hands to form the mixture into small patties – there should be enough to make about 12.
Heat a 1 cm depth of oil in a large non-stick fry pan over medium heat. Fry the falafel for 2 – 3 minutes each side until crispy and deep golden brown. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to soak up any excess oil.
To assemble, spread a generous spoonful of the hummus over the middle of the Rebel wrap, top with a large handful of the beetroot slaw and 3 green falafels. Sprinkle with fresh herbs and wrap up nice and firmly. Repeat with the remaining 3 wraps.
