For Falafel Patties:

Instructions

  1. Prep and chop all desired toppings. Set aside.

  2. While the falafel is cooking, heat oven to 200 F and keep the naan or your wrap of choice warm until ready to use.

Garlic Yogurt Sauce:

  1. Combine yogurt, lemon juice, garlic powder and salt + pepper in a small bowl. Drizzle with olive oil. Set aside.

Falafel Patties:

  1. Add all ingredients into a food processor and pulse until well combined.

  2. Using your hands, roll mixture into balls, about two tablespoons each, until it is used up (makes about 12 falafel patties - 3 per wrap).

  3. Coat bottom of skillet with a heavy drizzle of olive oil. Heat over medium-high.

  4. Place 1/4 cup rounds of fritter batter into skillet (I like to use an ice cream scoop). Flatten and shape slightly with spatula.

  5. Cover and cook on one side for 4-5 minutes.

  6. Flip and then cook uncovered 4-5 minutes longer.

  7. Divide falafel and toppings between the four wraps. Dollop with Garlic Yogurt Sauce. Enjoy!
