Making healthy lunches that don’t bore the kids is a challenge in the summer months. You can only serve so many peanut butter sandwiches! My boys are a little finicky so I can’t be as creative with them, but my daughter is always open to trying new things. I have always loved Falafel and Avery hadn’t tried it before, so I decided to put together one of my favourite wraps for her, a falafel wrap. I picked up some Dempster’s Tortillas and my personal favourite toppings, and we got to work!
I can’t have a falafel wrap without hot peppers but Avery hasn’t developed a taste for hot peppers yet, so the recipe I share below is how I made my falafel. You can choose any toppings that you like, but I recommend that your don’t skip the tzatziki sauce. Avery chose to have a wrap with just lettuce, falafel and tzatziki sauce.
- Dempster’s Tortilla
- 3 Falafel
- 2 tbsp tzatziki sauce
- 2 lettuce leaves, chopped
- 2 slices tomato chopped
- 2 tbsp chopped red onion
- 5-6 pickled hot banana pepper rings
- Heat the falafel for 2 mins in the microwave.
- Place the lettuce in the middle of the wrap and top it with the falafel balls.
- Add your remaining toppings and the tzatziki sauce.
- Wrap and eat!
So we made the wraps and the final verdict from Avery was a no for the falafel but yes to the toppings. She left off the hot peppers and the tomatoes and I think she would have liked it more had she used more toppings. Oh well, it left more falafel for me! I’m just glad she tried it and I think she will like it more if she tries it again with some more toppings.
Have you made any creative wraps lately?
