This Low-Carb Veggie Wrap Is Heaven Sent
A beautiful falafel wrap has got to be up there with the all-time great vegetarian dishes. The chickpea-based falafel, the salad, the sauces, the hummus, the chilli - it all adds up to something really, really special. As a bonus - the falafel and the hummus supply a massive 5g of fibre and when coupled with Lo-Dough's 9.3g, this is boosted to a total of 14.3g - nearly half your recommended daily fibre intake in one meal.
You get all this fibre and flavour for just 329 calories and 24g carbs - only 5g of which are sugars.
Falafel is a commonly found middle eastern street food dish that is thought actually have its origins in Egypt. It is made from either fava beans or chickpeas (or indeed, both). They are commonly spiced with cumin and coriander seed and fresh parsley and coriander (herb).
