Falafel, Beetroot and Goats Cheese Wraps - National Vegetarian Week

Falafel, Beet and Goats Cheese Wrap 

It's day two of National Vegetarian Week. Yesterday we made Rocket Hummus, so now it's time to put it to some practical use. Falafel, Beetroot and Goats Cheese Wraps.
 
Great Food kindly sent me some of their falafel and pakora to try so it was a really quick meal to put together. The falafel was very moreish!

You may think this looks like a rather superb lunch, but actually we enjoyed this for dinner. It's very filling and is absolutely droolworthy. 

Cooper had a simpler version, spread with just a little hummus, some falafel, cucumber and sweetcorn and Graham had the same as me, but without the goats cheese.

I added a dollop or two of marmalade for sweetness to contrast with the pickled beetroot and the tangy salty cheese, but sweet chilli sauce or mango chutney would also be excellent.

I bet you're looking at that and thinking there is NO WAY she managed to wrap all that up! I can tell you it was a close thing. It was rather full, but I managed it. Munch! Munch!

What do you like on a wrap?

  4. Oh they sound amazeballs!!! Love a wrap and your combo sounds droolworthy indeedy!! My kids are also big fans so we eat quite a few these days...and it's amazing what good stuff you can sneak in there, more than the usual bread sandwich I find. And Janie's Lentil & Nettle Curry sounds heavenly too, often to have a peek at it....

    1. You can indeed sneak extras in there, which is always handy. I think you try different fillings with wraps too.

  6. I'll go with that. I'm currently trying to reduce my meat, lactose, caffeine, and cholesterol in a vague attempt to lead a healthier life. Raw food is the way to go, I suspect, so I'm introducing much more of it into my diet.

  9. Love falafel, but only if homemade and eaten warm or brought as street food in the Middle East. But your wraps do look rather good and it's a great idea for serving them. Your photos are fabulous.
