DIFFICULTY CAPABLE COOKS
200g packet felafel mix (see note)
vegetable oil, for shallow-frying
4 sheets lavash bread or mountain bread
1/3 cup hommus dip
1/4 cup burghul (cracked wheat)
1 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped
1/4 cup mint leaves, chopped
1 tomato, chopped
1/2 small white onion, finely chopped
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 lemon, juiced
Make tabouli: Place burghul in a small bowl. Cover with cold water. Stand for 15 minutes. Drain. Use the back of a large metal spoon to press out excess water. Transfer burghul to a large bowl. Add parsley, mint, tomato, onion, olive oil and 2 tablespoons lemon juice. Mix until well combined. Season with salt and pepper.
Meanwhile, make felafel following packet directions. Shape mixture into 16 balls. Pour enough vegetable oil into a non-stick frying pan to cover base. Heat over medium heat until hot. Cook felafel, in batches, turning often, for 4 minutes or until lightly golden all over and heated through. Drain on paper towel.
Spread each lavash with 1 tablespoon hommus. Spoon one-quarter of tabouli along 1 short end of 1 sheet lavash bread. Top with 4 felafel. Season with salt and pepper. Roll up firmly. Repeat with remaining lavash, hommus, tabouli and felafel. Serve.
Felafel mix is available from the health food section of your supermarket. Shortcut: You can buy tabouli from the deli section of the supermarket, but it’s cheaper to make yourself.
