Jamie's 15 Minute Meals Challenge #4

This is round three of the J.O. vs Jo 15 minutes smack down, I am testing Jamie Oliver's recipes for his new 15 minute meals book. If you are playing along, leave a comment with your blog post link or just talk us through it in the comments section.

Recipe #4 Falafel Wraps, Grilled Veg & Salsa pg 226

Sourcing the ingredients:
Harissa was bought through kenko
Everything else was bought at the supermarket or Yamaya.

I used regular white tortillas because they are the only ones I can buy.
I also used mixed salad leaves instead of coriander.

Ready, steady, cook...

Again, I had food processor issues, mine not being big enough! Apart from that it was really easy to follow and came together quickly. I should have made 8 falafel but only did 6 so they took a wee bit longer to cook, I have no doubt I can do this in 15 minutes next time, I was soooo close first time round! I also need to remember to get the table top grill heated up high before I start. 

J.O.'s time 15 minutes
Jo's time 17 minutes
Family opinion - Ebi-kun 9/10
                           Daddy 9/10
                           Me 9/10 

It was really tasty and all got demolished, I'll be making this one again for sure.

Notes to self:
Buy a bigger food processor!

That wraps up round three, pop back next week for round five...


  1. I haven't seen the recipe so I'm assuming the food processor is for the falafel?
    I just use a potato masher, I find that if I use a processor that it processes things too much and my falafel turns to paste (even if I just whizz it for a sec). Might slow down your time by a few minutes though ;-)

    1. yes, it was for the falafel, I whizzed it for a bit then mixed the rest by hand, so there were full beans in there - turned out fine!


Thank you!
