From the author, Terrence Paschal: This BBQ Chickpea Wrap is a quick and easy meal to prepare for lunch or dinner. You can use any BBQ sauce you like. Try it with a sweet, or a spicy sauce. It is packed with protein, and fiber and is very low in fat.

From Plant-Based on a Budget: Quick and delicious wraps are the perfect simple and satisfying lunch. They don’t require much cooking and can be eaten fairly quickly, which makes them an amazing option for work or school lunches or any on the go meals. Just add some veggies, a plant-based protein, and some sauce to make it juicy and more flavorful. This BBQ Chickpea Wrap is one of those you’ll keep on coming back to!

Chickpea Wonders

Chickpeas are such a friendly legume. They have a mild flavor and soft texture which makes them perfect for so many plant-based preparations such as our beloved hummus or the world favorite falafels. To praise these little wonders, even more, they are packed with plant protein and can turn any veggie-based dish into a full meal. Now you can understand why chickpeas are such a favorite of ours. They have it all!

Did you know that you can even use the brine they come soaked in (or the liquid you use for cooking them!) to make a plant-based version of merengue and other fluffy preparations calling for beaten egg-whites? It’s called aquafaba and it’s magical! Give it a try.

BBQ Sauce on Everything

It’s a known fact that BBQ sauce is delicious, and let’s face it, everything tastes better with a bit of bbq sauce on it. In this case, it makes the chickpeas sweet and smokey and very irresistible. Are you a big BBQ sauce fan? What’s your favorite dish to add to?
