Smashed Falafel Wrap (Vegan)

The smashed falafel wraps are a big viral hit at the moment! They are very quick and easy to make and taste delicious. The purists use dried chickpeas but I think tinned chickpeas work just fine. Add lots of green fresh herbs like parsley and mint.

This makes a great filling lunch loaded with green lettuce from our tunnels, tomato, pickles and red onions. The tahini dressing is the perfect dressing.
