Chickpea Lettuce Wraps

My daughter and I first tried a version of these at our local natural grocery store at a food demo.  I modified them to suit my needs and they are a favorite in our house.  Messy to eat but so delicious.  And it’s super quick and easy – no cooking involved!

Don’t skip the peanut sauce as a topping!  Amazing.

  • 2 cans chickpeas (I used unsalted), drained
  • 1/4 cup scallions or green parts of green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 small red pepper, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • pinch crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp dried rosemary, pulverized with a mortar and pestle (or fresh if you have it!)
  • 2 Tbsp white (or red) wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp salt (omit if chickpeas are salted)
  • ground black pepper
  • 1/2 head lettuce leaves, for serving
  • Peanut Sauce for topping

Combine everything in a bowl.  Serve room temperature with lettuce leaves and peanut sauce.  Make a mess trying to eat, but enjoy every moment of it!
