    Default what do you put in your falafel wraps?

    hi guys! i've bought some falafels and some tortilla wraps and i want to make falafel wraps for my lunch. just wondered what others put in along with falafels? so far i'm thinking vegan mayo, tomato, maybe some lettuce, possibly avocado but none of it seems quite right...any ideas?
    thanks! tri

    Lettuce
    Tomatoes
    Pickles
    Pickled turnip called lift (find this in a Middle Eastern grocery store)
    Tahini sauce (tahini with lemon juice and thinned out with water, this is important to an authentic falafel wrap)
    Hot peppers (if you like)
    Peace, love, and happiness.

    I normally just spread a load of humous on before rolling. Sometimes lettuce/spinach and sliced tommato.

    And you need to make a cup of strong, black coffee for after!

    Oh, and it is much better with actual middle eastern flatbread if you can find any.

    thanks guys - i definately like the idea of red/raw onions and spinach too.

    tigerlilly - what sort of proportions do you use to make the tahini sauce? that's EXACTLY what i wanted - the falafel van/stall here uses that but i don't know how to make it from the thick tahini i have in a jar in my fridge....
    thanks! tri

    I don't measure it out, sorry. But a few spoonfuls of tahini, lemon juice to taste (a few squirts to half a lemon), and if it's still too thick, just add a little bit of water.
    Peace, love, and happiness.

    I do mine like this:

    Houmous or Guacamole
    Strong lettuce
    Tomato
    Cucumber

    Simple but effective.

    I'm partial to the traditional (tabouli, hommous, tomato, onion) but I like avocado, grated carrot, eggplant (buy if it's too hard to make), artichoke hearts and olives. I also like paprika/red pepper/capsicum spread. Such as awesome meal can be made with bread and falafel, can't it?

    My favourite is - wholemeal pita bread(not a big fan of wraps), falafels, baby spinach, sundried tomatoes, red peppers, artichoke heart and balsamic vinegar!
