Falafel wrap with cauliflower and aubergine

What would a Lebanese household be without a functioning deep-fat fryer, or at least an old pot in which there is always frying oil? Nothing! Lebanese people wouldn't be happy without a deep fryer. Just think of falafel! OMG!

You see where I'm going with this, right? Yes, we Lebanese deep-fry everything, if possible. Well, not everything, but there is at least one fried component on the dinner table. Usually it's chips, deep-fried aubergine or deep-fried cauliflower. Often all at the same time.

The greasy gold pieces are then lovingly wrapped in a flatbread (even the fries!) and devoured. It's delicious, really!

Add a few fresh herbs, some yoghurt or tahini sauce and your eyes will light up with happiness. What could be better than a filled wrap full of delicious components? That's it! And you can let your imagination run wild. My youngest niece likes to wrap a few Lego bricks in it ...

One of my favourite wraps is this one: Crispy falafel, aubergine, cauliflower - plus yoghurt sauce and fresh herbs.

I admit: The wrap and its components need some preparation (unless you buy ready-made falafel). But it's worth it!
