  • cup

    caramelized onions

  • ¼ cup

    fresh parsley, chopped

  • ¼ cup

    fresh cilantro, chopped

  • ¼ Tbsp.

    crushed red pepper

  • 1 ½ tsp.

    kosher salt

  • 3

    whole garlic cloves

  • cup

    ground cumin

  • 1 ½ tsp.

    baking powder

  • ¾ cup

    gluten-free flour

  • cup

    rice flour

  • For the wrap:

  • Red pepper mayonnaise

  • Spinach

  • Tomato

  • Pickled red onions

  • Tzatziki cucumbers

  • Avocado, sliced

  • Kalamata olives

  • Feta (optional)

Directions

  • Soak dried chickpeas overnight or for at least 12 hours. Drain and purée in a large food processor.

  • Add both types of onions, parsley, cilantro, red pepper, salt, garlic, and cumin. Blend until mostly smooth.

  • Transfer to a large bowl and mix in the baking powder and flours by hand. Refrigerate overnight.

  • When ready to cook, form falafel mixture into 2-oz. balls, and deep-fry them in hot oil until browned.

  • To assemble the wrap, spread mayonnaise on a tortilla. Fill tortilla with falafel and additional wrap ingredients. Fold and roll up tightly, encasing the filling. Grill and serve warm.

Notes

  • The falafel recipe is gluten-free. To make the whole wrap gluten-free, substitute the flour tortilla for a gluten-free tortilla of your choice.
