Pea Falafel and Hummus Wrap Recipe

Green peas are a great source of iron. This vital nutrient is important for a strong immune system and to transport oxygen to all the cells in the body. Peas are packed with protein and fibre to help keep you satisfied after a meal, and blood sugar levels nice and balanced. Chickpeas contain plenty of dietary fibre, along with protein and amylose, a type of starch that’s digested slowly to help keep you satisfied for longer.

Makes: 12 balls, enough to make 3–4 wraps
