Enjoy these easy vegetarian wraps on your next Meatless Monday, or throw them together for a quick & protein-packed lunch. Recipes don't always have to be complicated or time-consuming to pack a lot of flavor.
2-4clovesgarlicminced (1-2 tsp -- I used 4 cloves, but that's personal preference)
1/4tspcrushed red pepper
Sea saltto taste
Black pepperto taste
Half a pint of grape tomatoeshalved
Spring mix salador other lettuce of choice
Rinse and drain chickpeas, then place them in a large bowl. Mash the chickpeas slightly with a large wooden spoon, leaving them fairly chunky for texture. (You can discard the skins that slough off the chickpeas as you mash them if you like, but they're harmless.)
Mix the avocado, onion, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, and spices into the bowl with the chickpeas. At this point, taste your chickpea mixture to see if you want to add a bit more lemon juice or spices to taste.
Assemble your wraps by spooning some of the chickpea mixture down the center of each, then adding sliced grape tomatoes and lettuce. Roll up your chickpea sandwich wraps... and enjoy!
While the wraps I used here "may contain" milk, because they're made on shared equipment, the recipe itself is vegan if the wraps you choose to use are. You could also omit the wraps and just enjoy the chickpea mixture over lettuce as a grain-free dinner salad -- There are lots of ways to tweak this basic recipe to match your family's needs!
