The best part about these Chickpea Wraps? They feel like comfort food, except they´re actually healthy for you. We´re talking a protein punch from the chickpeas and zero-cholesterol. Talk about heart-healthy food that packs a ton of goodness.

Chickpea Wraps with Garlic Sauce
To make this recipe, I used jarred chickpeas, which is the same thing as the canned ones. I also used baby romaine lettuce to make the wraps. But you can use any type of lettuce you like or even mexican corn or flour tortillas.

TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: The chickpeas and garlic sauce can be prepped ahead of time and added into the fridge. They will hold for up 3 days. I topped off the wraps with chopped red onion and tomato. But you can also add in some sliced avocado and/or pickles.
