This is how you make it
Soak the chickpeas in plenty of water overnight.
Preheat the oven to 200 ° C.
Cut the cucumber and tomato into strips or slices.
Then put all ingredients for the falafel, except the coconut oil, in the food processor and grind everything finely. Not too fine, it shouldn't be like hummus.
Roll the balls of the dough and flatten them slightly.
Put the coconut oil in a frying pan and brown the falafel alternately in 5-6 minutes.
Bake the pita bread in the oven or toaster for 2-3 minutes.
Cut open the pitas. Coat the rolls with hummus. Then fill them with arugula, tomato and cucumber, falafel and possibly some extra hummus.
