- 1 tablespoon plain flourall purpose flourX
- 1 teaspoon ras el hanout spice mix
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 4 large tortilla wraps or round pittas
- 150g reduced-fat hummus
- ½ small iceberg lettuce, shredded
- 2 tomatoes, sliced
- 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
- 250g tub fresh tabbouleh (from the chiller aisle in supermarkets. Check it's vegan)

1 To make the falafels, blitz the onion, garlic and parsley in a small food processor. Add the chickpeas, flour and ras el hanout, then blend until just combined. Season with ground black pepper. Remove the mixture from the processor and knead on a clean board or worksurface until well combined. Shape the mixture evenly into 12 small balls.
2 Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan and set over a medium heat. Cook the falafels for 5–10 min, shaking the pan gently occasionally, until evenly brown on all sides.
3 Meanwhile, warm the wraps or pitas, and mix the hummus with 2 tablespoons water in a bowl to thin slightly.
4 To serve, top each wrap or fill each pita with 3 falafels (halved, if you like), lettuce, tomato, onion and tabbouleh. Spoon over the thinned hummus and drizzle with hot chilli sauce, if using. Serve any extra salad, tabbouleh, hummus and falafels on the side.
