Falafel wraps are a great meal to make with baked falafel balls. These delicious wraps are made with vegan tortilla wraps, falafel, tahini sauce, pickled carrots and beets, sliced cucumbers, and arugula. This recipe is vegan, vegetarian, dairy-free, and can easily be gluten-free depending on which tortilla you use.
This Falafel Wrap recipe is so easy to make any day of the week and is so healthy for you. It's filled with nutritious vegetables, delicious Baked Falafel, homemade Tahini Sauce, and it's all wrapped in a tortilla of your choice. Some additional good vegan and gluten free wrap options are roasted red pepper, spinach, and corn. If you're not gluten-free, then any other flour tortillas will work as well.
If you're not familiar with falafels, they're a Middle Eastern or Mediterranean plant based ball made with chickpeas, onion, garlic, black pepper, ground coriander, baking powder, and other spices and blended in a food processor. They are then either deep fried or baked in the oven and can be dipped in sauces like tahini or tzatziki or made into other dishes like these wraps, Falafel Bowls or Falafel Pitas.
- Preparation time: 10 minutes
- 2 large tortilla wraps
- 8 falafel balls
- 4 tablespoon tahini sauce
- 1 cup pickled carrots
- 1 cup grated beet with a pinch of wasabi
- 1 cucumber
- Handful of arugula
How to make Falafel Wraps
You can use store bought ingredients or try making some of my healthier homemade options. These wraps can be enjoyed hot or cold. Feel free to warm or toast your tortillas prior to wrapping. Making the wrap itself is easy once you have all the ingredients that you need. Once you’ve made the falafel balls, tahini sauce, and pickled carrots, you’ll only need to grate the beet and slice the cucumber.
To assemble these wraps grab a tortilla, spread the tahini sauce on the bottom, layer the falafel balls then the vegetables, and drizzle with a little more tahini sauce. To help keep the wraps together, you can stick a wooden skewer through the sides or wrap them in parchment paper.
Tips For Success
- Since these are so easy to make, they're great for packing lunches for yourself or your family. Just keep the veggies separate from the wrap and when you're ready to eat, assemble it with the sauce, pickled vegetables, and fresh arugula.
- If you'd like to swap out the sauce, you can use tzatziki sauce or hummus instead of tahini.
- Make this into a salad instead of a wrap. Use more lettuce, some garbanzo beans, thinly sliced red onions, cherry tomatoes, diced cucumbers, vegan feta cheese or anything else you want to add.
- Some recipes for easy falafel wraps have you use pita bread instead of a tortilla which makes for a chewier and thicker wrap and is also delicious.
- Store all the ingredients separately so they don't become mushy. Place each in a separate ziplock bag or container and keep them in the fridge for up to 3 days.
- If you plan on eating a wrap after then, it's best to cut fresh veggies. The pickled veggies will keep for up to a month in the fridge.
- You can freeze the sauce, the falafels, and the wraps in individual plastic freezer bags for up to 3 months.
- To serve, you can thaw the sauce out in the refrigerator, reheat falafels in the oven or stove top, and cut fresh veggies. Use fresh tortillas, and enjoy!
