Chickpea Salad

Chickpea salads are one of my go-to quick and easy lunches to meal prep for the week. They’re made from mashed chickpeas, crunchy veggies, and a few simple seasonings.

Instead of using mayo in my traditional recipe, I added tahini in this one for a delicious, nutty flavor.

These mediterranean inspired wraps are full of plant-based protein, and taste delicious in a wrap, sandwich, or served with your favorite crackers.

I filled my wraps with a homemade tahini sauce, some harissa for added spice, lettuce, the chickpea mixture and feta cheese. These wraps can easily be made gluten-free by substituting your favorite gluten-free wrap, and can be made vegan by using a plant-based feta cheese.
