Vegan food review - falafels

Last Saturday I cooked with the Linda McCartney Sausages for the first time and reported that they weren't too bad. Click here to see the quick and easy dinner.

This has got me thinking and every now and again I will review a different product and report my findings. The idea is that I will investigate whether or not the processed/ready made food is a help or a hindrance in the kitchen especially when you need something quick and easy. 

Today I chose already made falafel and turned them into a spicy wrap with rocket, homemade tomato salsa, sweet chilli sauce and vegan mayonaise. The verdict - surprisingly tasty!

Place your wrap on a board and add the rocket a third of the way up. Cut the falafel's in half and place on top of the rocket. Spoon over the homemade salsa and trickle over the sweet chilli sauce and vegan mayonnaise.

For the homemade salsa you will need 2 tomatoes, 1 small onion and a small handful of fresh coriander. Finely chop the onion, tomatoes and coriander and put in a bowl. Add a little salt and freshly ground black pepper and mix to combine. If you wanted to use this as part of a Mexican spread just add a finely diced chilli to the mix.
