- Tabouli: Place burghul (cracked wheat) in a large bowl and cover with cold water and let stand for 15 minutes. Drain and use the back of a large metal spoon to press out excess water. Add parsley, mint, tomato, onion, olive oil and 2 tablespoons lemon juice. Mix until well combined. Season with salt and pepper.
- Felafels: Follow directions on felafel mix, shape mixture into small balls. Pour enough vegetable oil into a non-stick frying pan to cover base and heat over medium heat until hot. Cook felafels in batches, turning often for approx 4 minutes or until lightly golden all over and heated through then drain on paper towel.
- Wraps: Spread each lavash bread with 1 tablespoon hommus. Spoon one-quarter of tabouli along 1 short end of 1 sheet lavash bread. Top with 4 felafels and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roll up firmly and repeat with remaining lavash, hommus, tabouli and felafel.
