Recipe Of The Week - Falafel & 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. 




  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and thinly shredded or coarsely grated
  • 1/3 iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 20g fresh coriander or chives, finely chopped
  • 125g hummus
  • 100ml Greek yogurt
  • 4 tbs vinaigrette dressing
  • 4 pitta bread
  • 2 x 250g ready-cooked falafel
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges, to serve

Serves 4


  1. Toss the carrots, lettuce, pepper, cucumber and herbs together in a large bowl
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the hummus, yogurt and vinaigrette
  3. Split the pitta bread in half and fill the pockets with the carrot  and salad vegetable mixture
