Ingredients

WW White Wraps

4 individual

0% fat natural Greek yogurt

6 tablespoons

Tomato

200 g, baby plum, quartered

Cucumber

½ individual, halved and sliced

Spinach

1 portion(s), baby leaf

Coriander, fresh

10 sprig(s), roughly chopped

Spring Onions

6 medium, sliced

Lime(s)

1 medium, cut into 4 wedges

Broad beans, frozen, boiled

350 g, fresh or frozen

Calorie controlled cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Onion(s)

1 medium, finely chopped

Garlic

3 clove(s), crushed

Cumin seeds

1½ tablespoons, level

Coriander, Dried

1½ teaspoons, level

Chilli flakes

¼ teaspoons, level

Chickpeas, cooked

1 can(s), large, drained

Plain White Flour

3 tablespoons, level

Egg white(s), raw

½ individual, lightly beaten

Instructions

  1. To make the falafels, blanch the broad beans for 1-2 minutes. Drain and set aside to cool. Pop them out of their greyish pods.
  2. Mist a large nonstick frying pan with cooking spray, add the onion and cook for 8 minutes until soft, adding a splash of water if needed to prevent burning. Add the garlic and spices, then cook for 2 minutes.
  3. Tip the spiced onion mixture into a food processor and add the broad beans, chickpeas, flour and egg white. Season, then process until the mixture forms a thick paste. Shape into 12 patties and chill in the fridge to firm them up.
  4. Wipe the frying pan clean with kitchen paper, then mist with cooking spray. Fry the patties over a medium heat for 3 minutes on each side, until golden – you will need to do this in batches.
  5. Warm the wraps in the microwave for 10 seconds, then spread with the yogurt and top with the salad ingredients. Place three falafels on top of each wrap; fold it over. Serve with the lime wedges.

Notes

Freeze uncooked falafel patties for up to 3 months (wrap them in cling film, or between greaseproof paper, and freeze in an airtight container).
