Contest and Sunshine Falafel Wrap with Creamy Cashew Tahini Sauce

Every now and then I like a good falafel wrap for lunch.  When I get this craving, I will usually go out to one my favorite food carts and grab one for a fast, healthy meal.  Last weekend I was tooling around in my kitchen, and realized that I could easily make an authentic, vegan, falafel wrap with Falafel Sunshine Burgers!  This recipe combines crisp and fresh cucumber tomato salad, hearty Falafel Sunshine Burgers, and creamy cashew lemon-Tahini sauce, for a well-balanced crowd-pleasing meal.  One thing I like about this recipe is that you can make the cashew-tahini sauce the night before.  The rest of the meal can come together very quickly and with relatively little mess, for a healthy and fast-weeknight meal.

03022014 Sunshine Falafel Wrap

This recipe serves 3:

Ingredients:

3 whole wheat tortillas, divided
1 package Falafel Sunshine Burgers, cooked per package instructions
6 Tbs King Harvest Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, divided
1/3 cucumber tomato salad mixture
Drizzle of cashew lemon-tahini sauce

Cucumber tomato salad:
1 cucumber, peeled and chopped
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1Tbs olive oil
1Tbs soy sauce
½ tsp harissa paste
Juice from ½ a lemon
1 avocado, chopped
1 big pinch of salt
1 clove of garlic, diced
½ bunch of flat leaf parsley, chopped

Cashew lemon-tahini sauce:
1 cup cashews, soaked
½ tsp salt
Juice from 1 lemon
1 Tbs tahini paste
½ cup water
2 cloves of garlic, minced

Directions:
To start the cashew lemon-tahini sauce, put all of the ingredients in a blender cup and pulse until smooth.  Once finished, the consistency will be smooth with just a slight amount of cashew texture.  If you are having trouble blending to the proper consistency, turn the blender off, scrape the sides of the blender cup, and add additional water 1 tablespoon at a time, and pulse again. For the salad, place all of the salad ingredients in a medium sized mixing bowl and toss until well combined.  Adjust seasoning as necessary.  To assemble the wrap: spread 2 tablespoons of hummus on a whole wheat tortilla.  Crumble 1 Sunshine Burger on top of the hummus.  With a slotted spoon, scoop about 1/3 of the salad mixture on top of the tortilla, then top with a drizzle of the cashew lemon-tahini sauce. Wrap the tortilla over the ingredients and enjoy!
