Falafel and Apple Salad Sandwich Recipe

A delicious vegan sandwich. Sweet crunchy apple with lightly spiced falafel, creamy hummus and fresh salad on soft brown bread with a sweet bit of heat from some mango chutney. Plus 15 family sandwich ideas.

I don't share many sandwich recipes, but I seem to make plenty of them and I'm always looking for new ideas, so I figured you might enjoy some new sandwich recipes too.

I often add falafel to sandwiches and wraps and this falafel and apple salad recipe went down really well. Graham and I both really enjoyed it. Needless to say Cooper would never eat this. He's funny with it comes to sandwiches. He likes them plain. 

He will eat a sandwich with peanut butter and jam, peanut butter and Nutella, butter and jam, Oh and he will eat falafel on a wrap with some cream cheese, but that's as exciting as it gets. 

Salad on a sandwich? You have to be joking! It's so odd that he likes cheese and crunchy salad vegetables but won't accept them on a sandwich. I really hope his tastes change and develop as he gets older. Thank goodness he loves homemade soup!

This sandwich combines sweet crunchy apple with lightly spiced falafel, creamy hummus and fresh salad on soft brown bread with a sweet bit of heat from some mango chutney. The flavours and textures are a real triumph.

These flavours would be great on a wrap or as a filling for some wholemeal pitta too.

    1. It really works. When I was making this the first time, I was looking around for something to add and thought the juicy, sweet crisp bite would be good and I was spot on.

    1. We eat so much falafel. Homemade is fabulous, but you can also pick up some rather nice ready made falafel. It''s great on sandwiches and pitta.

  8. I love a good sandwich - and I rarely make falafel these days - tempted though to rush down to my fave falafel shop to buy falafel for this sanger. Sylvia also likes her sandwiches quite plain and is not so into soup though will try them more. I love all your hummus combos (because we always have hummus). when I was little one of my fave sandwiches was baked beans - I still have one at home occasionally.

    1. I am so jealous you have a falafel shop there. I would be at it all the time. I've never heard of a baked bean sandwich, but my mum and late aunt used to have sugar or condensed milk sandwiches. It was a post war thing.

    1. Oh yes that would be good, but I'd need a pinch of salt and a good grinding of black pepper.

  10. I'm already a big fan of hummus and falafel but love the additions of fresh apple and mango chutney here! I could imagine liking this a lot!

    1. I often add some kind of chutney along with hummus, it just perks it up. The fresh apple adds a nice juicy crunch.

  11. This reminds me so much of the sandwiches my daughter used to make me for Mother's Day... for breakfast in bed!

    1. BTW, I forgot to ask - did you make the falafel for this in your Froothie?

      Delete
    2. No, I just used ready made. I buy Cauldron falafel. They are handy to have in the fridge. I have made my own, but not this time. The ones I did make myself I made in my Froothie blender.

  12. I love the sweetness of the apple! What a fantastic and unique combination!

    1. Yes it really works against the spice from the mango chutney and falafel.
