Cooking Time 10min


  • 40g bulgur wheat
  • ½ small red onion, finely chopped
  • 4tbsp chopped fresh flatleaf parsley
  • 4tbsp chopped fresh mint
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • Zest and juice 1 lemon

  4. Put 3 falafels on top of the hummus and crush slightly. Top with the grated cheese and tabouleh. Repeat with the second flatbread, then roll up and cut the wraps in half to eat.
