These easy lettuce wraps are filled with a delicious chickpea scramble and make a great savory vegan breakfast or lunch. Or dinner. You can actually make them in 10 minutes if you have a can of chickpeas at home.
I made these chickpea lettuce wraps 3 times within 3 days, which means I like them a lot, given I change my food preferences as if they’re Kleenex.
So, yes – once a week. I really need to work on being less disgusting when I write about food, don’t I? Especially because I actually want you to try this recipe and not throw up while reading this.
It took me 10 minutes and I got to smash the hell out of some innocent chickpeas. They cried and begged, but I was more determined than a seagull fighting for a bone.
Which is what I saw on my morning walk today and it was brutal. Seeing two seagulls fighting over a bone is next level creepy and I will most definitely have nightmares tonight. But what can you do?
Now, to be honest, I know there are quite a few chickpea scramble recipes out there and this one looks like a sad, sad attempt. Like Chicksimodo. (chickpea + quasimodo, get it?) Or Frankenscramble. Frankenpea.
Also, to be even more honest (why do I say that, I don’t know), I don’t even think this is what you’d expect when making a chickpea scramble. I mean, who even knows what a chickpea scramble is? My grandma didn’t know and didn’t care.
My mom would beat me with a pan if I told her we’re eating chickpea scramble today. All that “modern” food is just confusing.
And here I am, against all odds, wrapping that scramble in a lettuce leaf like a 90’s model who ran out of cotton and orange juice and now has nothing for lunch.
I ate all 4 of these. And they were delicious.
Now seriously, if you have 10 minutes and want to try a new chickpea recipe that is light and flavorful – make these.
They are healthy, high-fiber, anti-inflammatory, super easy and quick to make and you can eat them for breakfast, lunch or dinner. They’re spicy, they’ve got some mint in them and if you’re very hungry: serve them on a toast with some avocado. You’ll be happy.
