Basic Ingredients for Falafel Wrap


Zahra’s Kitchen Falafel: The centrepiece of the wrap, these falafels provide a hearty, protein-rich base with a blend of chickpeas, herbs, and spices. They offer a satisfying crunch and a burst of flavour.

Tahini Sauce:

Tahini Sauce: Made from ground sesame seeds, this sauce adds a creamy, nutty flavour that complements the falafel’s earthiness. It also introduces a smooth texture contrast to the falafel’s crispiness.

Parsley Salad Served with Marinated Onions:

Parsley Salad with Sumac-Marinated Onions: Fresh parsley adds a burst of colour and a fresh, herbal note, while the Sumac-Marinated onions introduce a tangy and slightly fruity flavour that enhances the overall taste of the wrap.


Arabic bread or pita bread: This acts as the vessel for the wrap, holding all the ingredients together. Its softness balances the crunch of the falafel and the crispness of the vegetables.

Fresh Mint Leaves: Mint adds a refreshing, cool flavour that contrasts with the deeper flavours of the other ingredients, adding complexity to the wrap.

Baby Gem Lettuce and Rocket Leaves: These greens add a crisp texture and a slight peppery note (from the rocket) that complements the other flavours without overpowering them.

Tomato: Provide a juicy, fresh counterpoint to the denser falafel that enlivens the wrap’s overall flavour profile.

Alternative Ingredients

Falafel: If Zahra’s Kitchen Falafel isn’t available, any high-quality falafel mix or even homemade falafel can be used as a substitute.

Tahini Sauce: For a different twist, you can use Greek yogurt or hummus as the sauce’s base.

Parsley Salad: Feel free to add or substitute cilantro or dill for a different herbal note.

Arabic bread or Pita bread: Flat bread is a great alternative.

Vegetables: Cucumbers, bell peppers, or pickles can be added or substituted for tomatoes and radishes for a different crunch and flavor.

Preparation Tips for Falafel Wrap

  • Ensure the falafel is well-cooked to achieve the desired crispiness without being dry inside.
  • Balance the tahini sauce’s consistency by adding water gradually; it should be creamy but not too thick.
  • Toss the parsley salad just before assembling the wrap to maintain freshness and prevent sogginess.

Serving Tips for Falafel Wrap

  • Serve the wrap immediately after assembling to enjoy the mix of textures, from the crispy falafel to the crunchy vegetables.
  • Pair the wrap with side dishes like hummus, tabbouleh, or a simple cucumber salad for a complete meal.

Storage Tips

  • Store the ingredients separately in airtight containers in the refrigerator to maintain freshness.
  • The assembled wrap is best enjoyed fresh, but if you need to store it, wrap it tightly in foil and keep it in the fridge for no more than a day.
  • Tahini sauce can be stored in the fridge for up to a week and can be used in other dishes as well.
