Raise your hand if you agree that lunch is the most boring meal of the day! *Raises both hands*

If you follow me on Instagram, it’s pretty apparent I’m not a huge fan of lunch.

My feed is mostly comprised of peanut butter topped sweet treats or quick and easy dinner ideas. (I’m high-key obsessed with my crockpot — you can find all of my crockpot recipes here)

I also share the same few lunches on my stories every week, but y’all, this vegan smashed chickpea salad is about to change the lunch GAME!

Vegan Smashed Chickpea Salad Wrap

Although I’m not vegan, I do try to eat a few meatless meals every week.

Michael and I love a good bean-based pasta topped with my vegan tomato cream sauce recipe and sauteed vegetables, or a shrimp stir fry using cauliflower rice as the base. SO good!

Lunch is a bit trickier when I’m trying to go meatless. For lunch, I tend to reach for a turkey wrap or eggs and avocado toast.

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with eggs, but I’ve gotten too repetitive with them, which is why I’m loving this smashed chickpea salad for a change!

I’m a huge fan of chickpeas.

I love adding them to my baked goods (like these gluten-free chocolate chip chickpea cookies), adding teriyaki chickpeas to a vegan stir fry, or toasting them up for a crunchy salad topping.

My latest obsession is smashing them up with tahini, a little plant-based yogurt, delicious herbs and spices, and adding it to a wrap with fresh veggies. AKA this recipe you’re reading right now.

It’s so flavorful and filling there is no way you’ll miss the meat!

What are chickpeas?

Chickpeas are a type of legume that offers a range of health benefits.

Chickpeas, or garbanzo beans, are a great source of plant-based protein and fiber, iron, zinc, phosphorus, B vitamins and more.

With so many vitamins and nutrients, chickpeas benefit the body in a number of different ways. Chickpeas help to increase satiety, boost digestion, keep blood sugar levels stable, increase protection against disease and more.

How to serve this mashed chickpea salad:

Serve your chickpea salad the same way you would chicken salad! AKA on a wrap (love these grain-free tortillas), toasted bread, on top of a salad, or even dip high-fiber crackers in!

I like adding chickpea salad to a wrap loaded with fresh vegetables.

For this wrap, I used mixed greens, fresh bell peppers, a drizzle of green goddess salad dressing, and my favorite hot sauce.

I love the sweetness and added crunch the bell peppers offer, but you can definitely add whatever veggies you love!

Some more topping for your vegan smashed chickpea salad sandwich include:

The options are really endless!

I add whatever I have on hand, but if I could add all of those toppings at once, I totally would.

There’s nothing more nourishing and delicious than a fresh, loaded vegetable wrap in my opinion.
