Falafel and hummus pitta

Falafel and hummus pitta is a delicious, quick and easy lunch. We suggest you prepare this ahead and then stuff into pitta pockets or use wraps if you prefer to make an easy take-to-work lunch. Perhaps you have a very long day ahead and will be home late. If this is in the fridge waiting for you then it's an easy late evening meal served in wraps or pittas.

  • 1/3 iceberg lettuce, shredded
