FALAFEL WRAPS: Great for a quick lunch or dinner.

This is a really quick and easy meal, either for lunch or dinner. It's super cheap and uses chickpeas in a way that is tasty and healthy.

It leaves no excuses, is completely homemade, and you can create that authentic flavour and feel good doing so.

Even better, you can make your own wraps for a fully homemade meal. 

 

2 cups Chickpeas, blended or mashed
1 1/2 teaspoons Cumin
1/2 teaspoon Salt
4 - 6 cloves Garlic, finely diced
1 medium Red Onion, finely diced
1 teaspoon Coriander seeds, or a handful torn fresh Coriander
1 large handful chopped Parsley
Pepper, to taste
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
OPTIONAL: 2 - 4 tablespoons Flour
