Make crispy falafel in a hummus wrap at home easily for your perfect lunch or meal prep. This recipe is vegan.

Mmmmm, falafel! We love it! Since we first discovered it about a decade ago in a narrow alley in Paris, France, we have recreated it (and made variations) so many times that it has become a staple in our home.

We have fried it, fried it, we eat it in salads and even in hamburgers. It is versatile, hearty, comforting and healthy.

This time we made it as a crispy falafel hummus wrap, for a packed lunch!

How to make your falafel crispy

The best way to make your falafel crisp is to fry it, as is done in its original recipe. Although for best results, we recommend using dried chickpeas that you soak in water overnight.

But if you're in trouble and crave a good falafel, canned chickpeas will work just as well (and don't let anyone tell you otherwise, we use canned all the time, but dried chickpeas are better!)

The downside to this is that it is fried. As in oil. Like, not healthy, right?

Well, if this is something from time to time, a little frying won't hurt you, but it will bring out the chickpea flavors and make it more crisp.

But if you prefer not to fry it, try our fried falafel recipe here.

How is falafel made?

Making falafel is really easy, but you will need a food processor with a large bowl. If necessary, a small bowl will work, just mix your dough in smaller batches.

After mixing, it turns off in the refrigerator for at least half an hour. I recommend making the dough in the morning and refrigerating it until lunchtime, so that the wait does not interfere with your feeding schedule.

Once refrigerated, shape the dough into balls and simply dip them in the hot oil to fry until golden brown.

Once fried, you can serve them in this magnificent hummus wrapper, or in a salad, or eat them as is. Either way, this crispy falafel is delicious – and it's even better in a wrap!

Make crispy falafel in a hummus wrap at home easily for your perfect lunch or meal prep. This recipe is vegan.


For the falafels:

  • 250 grams of chickpeas, canned and drained
  • 1 red onion
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • bushel of parsley
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 tablespoons of flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder

For the wraps:

  • 6 small tortillas
  • 12 lettuce leaves
  • 4 sheets of napa cabbage
  • 1 small red onion
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 avocado


  • 6 teaspoons hummus
  • 1 teaspoon of tahini
  • frying oil


  1. Prepare the falafel mixture: Drain the canned falafel and place it in a food processor. Add chopped onion, garlic, parsley, season with salt, pepper, and smoked paprika. Mix until smooth. Then add the flour with the baking powder, mix well, and refrigerate for at least half an hour.
  2. Remove the falafel dough from the fridge, scoop out small amounts of dough and roll into balls. Set aside.
  3. In a frying pan or pot add oil for frying and heat. The oil is hot enough when bubbles appear if you drop a little dough, and the dough floats. Place in the falafel dumplings and fry over medium heat until golden. Once fried, remove the falafel from the oil and reserve on a paper towel to drain.
  4. Prepare the tortilla wrap fillings: wash and dry the lettuce, crumble the napa cabbage, cut the onion, cucumber, tomatoes and avocado into thin slices.
  5. Mix a teaspoon of tahini with a couple of tablespoons of water for a quick dressing.
  6. Heat a dry skillet and heat the tortillas. Spread each one with a little hummus, add the vegetables and some falafels. Drizzle with tahini dressing and serve.
