My favourite takeaway at home…



  • 6 wholemeal pieces of lebanese bread
  • 6 lettuce leaves
  • 3 tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/2 Spanish onion, sliced


  • 1 1/2 cups cooked chickpeas
  • 3 tablespoons tahini paste
  • 3 cloves garlic, curshed
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons water


  • 435g canned chickpeas
  • 1 large onion, grated
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 pinch chilli powder
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup wholemeal flour to coat
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


To make falafel rolls, place chickpeas in a food processor and process until roughly chopped. Place chopped chickpeas in a bowl with remaining falafel ingredients, except oil. Mix well.Form tablespoons of mixture into patties. Heat oil in a frypan and cook patties until golden brown.

To make houmous, place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.

Spread houmous on lebanese bread. Place 3 falafel, topped with lettuce, tomato and onion, in the centre of the Lebanese bread and roll up the bread.
