Chickpea Salsa Wraps

Rozanne Stevens

Serves 4

This is a great recipe for a Meat Free Monday, whether you are one person, two or more. Great fun for kids, as they can mix and match and create their own filling combinations. The chickpea base has a wonderful flavour and texture, you won't miss the meat at all! The filling will stay fresh in the fridge for three days and makes a super packed lunch. Go easy on the sour cream and grated cheese and you will have a very figure-friendly meal.
