Chick Pea Lettuce Wraps

This is a simple Meatless Monday recipe that takes no time at all! Even the kiddos will eat them! Top it how you want, my toppings are just a suggestion. Get creative!


2 Can of Chickpeas, Drained

1 Head of Iceberg Lettuce, Washed

2 Large Carrots, Grated

6 Scallions, Sliced to Desired Thickness

1 Purple Onion, Minced

1/2 C Roasted Peanuts, Crushed

4 T Hot Bean Paste, Divided

1/2 C Rice Wine Vinegar

1/4 Olive or Sesame Oil

White Pepper

  • Drain Beans, Rinse and place in a large bowl with the oil, Vinegar, and half the bean paste, toss to coat. I recommend they sit for at least two hours at room temp.
  • Set up your Lettuce wrap bar using small bowls to display the toppings, set up Lettuce leaves on a pretty platter.
  • Let the family Serve themselves!

*You can decide whatever toppings to serve. A good rule of thumb is to add at least three colors of veggies and something nutty and/or crunchy like the peanuts. Also alternate how you prep the veggies. I like to vary a dice, mince, shred and rough chop so your wraps have different textures.

Happy Eating!
