Harissa Chickpea Wraps

Wraps are one of my go-to quick and easy lunches to meal prep for the week, so I love creating delicious fillings to fill them with.

These chickpea wraps are made with a 10-minute harissa chickpea filling, fresh greens, fete cheese, and avocado. They come together so easily, and are the perfect plant-forward lunch to fuel your day.

The harissa chickpeas are made with sauteed onions and peppers, chickpeas, harissa, and a few simple seasonings. They are so good on their own, and can even be used as a salad topper.

I filled my wraps with a the harissa chickpeas, arugula, avocado, and feta cheese. You can make them gluten-free by substituting your favorite gluten-free wrap, or keep it vegan by using a plant-based feta.
