These Greek Chickpea Wraps are crunchy, tangy, and simple to make!
Chickpeas are a magical little bean.
These Greek Chickpea Wraps make an easy picnic lunch or light summer dinner. Grab a high protein, whole grain wrap (affiliate link —> to my fav) and stuff it full of crunchy chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans, fyi), fresh veggies, and some tangy toppings.
The combination of cucumbers, red onion, and roasted red pepper is so fresh and flavorful. The chickpeas add richness while the feta balances it out with saltiness.
I like to just squeeze a fresh lemon over the wrap to add that extra tanginess, and sprinkle with a few drops of red wine vinegar to really round it out.
We’ve already been on a few picnic lunches this year. I love being able to bring a healthy sandwich like this and some fruit or baby carrots to have alongside.
The kids usually get peanut butter sandwiches with banana chips or applesauce, but I’d love some fresh ideas for kids on the go! It is so hard to find something that all four kids will like.
These Greek Chickpea Wraps are easy to customize! Here are a few ideas:
- Use leftover fajita veggies in place of the fresh veggies
- Drizzle with tzatziki sauce instead of lemon juice and red wine vinegar
- Use a gluten-free wrap or serve over rice to keep it gluten-free
- Leave off the feta to make it vegan
