Chickpea Salad Romaine Wraps

Chickpea Salad Romaine Wraps

These wraps are high in cancer-fighting fiber and quite refreshing on a warm spring or summer day!

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups cooked or canned chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup finely chopped or grated carrot
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
3 green onions, chopped
2 to 3 tablespoons fat-free or low-fat vegan mayonnaise
1 tablespoon stone-ground mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 large romaine lettuce leaves
1 medium tomato, sliced, or 6 to 8 cherry tomatoes, cut in half

Directions:

  1. Coarsely mash the beans with a fork or potato masher, leaving some chunks.
  2.  Add the carrot, celery, green onions, vegan mayonnaise, mustard, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
  3. Place about one-quarter of the mixture on each lettuce leaf. Add one-quarter of the tomato, roll the lettuce around the filling, and serve.
  4. Stored in a covered container in the refrigerator, leftover Chickpea Salad Romaine Wrap filling (without the lettuce and tomato) will keep for up to 3 days.
