Falafel Wrap | Pesto Falafel Recipe

Falafel Wraps, a staple in my food army, are the greatest low calorie meals available, yet they give you so much for your money.

A tin of chickpeas these days costs 35p, which is for nothing, and because they are a great carrier of flavour, the opportunities are endless.

Today I bring you my pesto falafel, which can be made with any type of pesto you like, I’ve gone authentic this time, although i am looking to get my hands on some wild garlic this year.

Bright and punchy, why not mix it with my radish pickle for a tangy surprise!


1 tin of Chickpeas
1 Red Onion, finely chopped
handful of Parsley, finely chopped
1tbsp Pesto
1 Egg, beaten
Salt & Pepper to taste
