VIEW WEEKLY MENUS

The best part about falafel is the crispy coating, and here we’ve replicated it on hearty eggplant, shallow fried until golden brown. Topped with creamy lemon hummus, these wraps will surely satisfy. If you need to keep the eggplant warm while you finish the rest of the dish, simply pop it in the oven on a baking sheet.
