Creamy Tuna & Chickpea Lettuce Wraps | Healthy 15 Minute Recipe
These Creamy Tuna & Chickpea Lettuce Wraps are packed with protein, loaded with flavors and super easy to make. But the best part? There is no cooking involved and they come together in just 15 minutes.
You can serve these wraps as a main course, a side dish or even as a snack on the go. Either way, they promise to fill your body with so much goodness.
For the lettuce I used small heads of lettuce, very similar to bibb lettuce. But you can use other types of lettuce here, such as iceberg lettuce or romaine. Or you can even use corn or flour tortillas if you like.
TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: You can serve these wraps at room temperature or even chilled. The creamy tuna & chickpea mixture will hold for up to 3 to 5 days in the fridge, in an air-tight container.
