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.

Creamy Tuna & Chickpea Lettuce Wraps
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.
