These healthy chickpea lettuce wraps are so quick and easy to put together, taste great, are vegetarian, and of course, are super healthy!
The texture of these lettuce wraps is really satisfying too! I feel like a lot of times lettuce wraps can be mushy and boring, but guess what? Not this time!
These healthy chickpea lettuce wraps have a nice “pop” from the chickpeas, crunch from the walnuts, crispness from the celery, and a nice chew from the raisins!
- 1 (15 oz) can chickpeas drained and rinsed
- 2 tablespoons low fat mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons non fat plain greek yogurt
- 3 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon hot madras curry powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons raisins
- 1/2 stalk celery chopped
- 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
- bibb lettuce washed, left whole
- Green onions thinly sliced
- Cilantro finely minced
- more chopped walnuts for topping, if desired
In a medium sized bowl, mash half a can of chickpeas using a potato masher.
Once they’re mashed, stir in the other half can of whole chickpeas and set aside.
In a small bowl, mix together the sauce ingredients: mayo, greek yogurt, lemon juice, curry powder, and salt.
Pour the sauce over the chickpeas and stir in the raisins, chopped celery and chopped walnuts.
Cover the bowl with saran wrap and let chill in the fridge until cold, about 30 minutes.
Once chilled, spoon the mixture into each lettuce leaf and top with thinly sliced green onion, finely minced cilantro, and more chopped walnuts! I also like to drizzle these with a little extra greek yogurt.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
