I adore Falafel wraps! This is probably my all time favorite vegan dish! I'm not a vegetarian in fact, I'm a total carnivore! Hardly a day goes by that I don't eat meat, but when something is good, its good and that's that! Let me tell you, this is good. You can certainly follow the baking directions for a bit less fat. The one's pictured here are baked not fried. Hope y'all enjoy these as much as I do!
