These falafel wraps with tzatziki make for a quick and easy dinner that’s quick to rustle up when you cut corners by using a packet mix.

Ingredients

  • 150g Al’Fez Falafel Mix (from Tesco and Waitrose)
  • ½ cucumber
  • 200g Greek-style natural yogurt
  • Small handful fresh mint, chopped
  • ¼ tsp ground cumin
  • ½ small garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 round Lebanese flatbreads
  • 1 little gem lettuce, leaves separated

Method

  1. Half-fill a saucepan or deep-fat fryer with vegetable oil and heat until a small cube of bread turns golden in 30 seconds.
  2. Make the falafels according to the packet instructions. Roll into balls and shallow-fry for 30 seconds until golden. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.
  3. For the tzatziki, peel half the cucumber portion, remove the seeds and chop into small cubes. Place the finely chopped cucumber in a bowl with the yogurt, mint, cumin and garlic, season well, mix and set aside. Roughly chop the rest of the cucumber and set aside.
  4. Warm the flatbreads for 20 seconds in the microwave, then lay flat on a work surface, line with lettuce leaves, top with hot falafels, drizzle with tzatziki and scatter with the chopped cucumber. Roll up to serve.
