Simple, delicious, full-proof. Chickpeas are good for everything, I swear it. Before I changed my diet, I used to throw them in salads, drown them in ranch or caesar dressing, and not even pay attention to the little powerhouses that they truly are. RIP to me having terrible taste and not appreciating the finer things in life.
Flash forward to today: I eat chickpeas every damn day. Over the past few years, i’ve truly grown to love them as they are really light in taste, and easily adapt to any kind of recipe. BBQ chickpea, General Tso’s chickpeas, Mediterranean chickpeas, Loaded Cookie Pie baked with chickpeas, I could go on forever but I think you get the point. Don’t underestimate these lil’ beans. As an added bonus: chickpeas are a great source of carbs, protein, and are really good for aiding in digestion – loveeeeee it.
If you’re looking for a way to get more beans into your diet, this wrap is a great start. Since it’s so similar to your standard BBQ Chicken wrap, its something that is familiar and a super easy substitution. These wraps are also great for parties, apps, football games, etc. Just make a few big wraps, roll them up tight, and chop them into small pieces.
Barbecue Chickpea Wrap
Yield: 2 wraps
- 1 can of chickpeas
- 1/3 cup chopped onion
- 1 cup chopped tomatoes
- 1 stalk of celery
- 1 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp chili powder, salt + pepper to taste
- 4 pieces of lettuce (I used romaine)
- 3 whole wheat tortillas
- BBQ Sauce
- Ranch sauce (optional)
- Open your can of chickpeas and rinse & dry them. When dry, put them into your food processor.
- Next, chop up all of your vegetables and add them to the food processor with the garlic powder, chili, and salt + pepper.
- Blend the ingredients until they are chopped up into small pieces.
- Throw them into a bowl, and toss with a few Tbsps of BBQ sauce.
- Once mixed, stuff your tortillas with the mixture and evenly distribute the lettuce to each wrap.
- When they are all wrapped up, serve with extra BBQ sauce as a dip or a ranch sauce (I like Daiya’s vegan version – found at whole foods).
