Awesome Chickpea Spread

Ok...I am eating this right now, so the feelings are really fresh in my mind! This is awesome! I found the recipe from: and the name of it is Chickpea Tomato Wrap. Instead of using a tortilla, I just made lettuce boats, put the filling on the lettuce and topped with tons of veggies: red pepper, celery, carrot and avocado. Yum. As you can tell from the picture, my 2 year old is eating will eat whatever you offer them...eventually. It's so awesome to see them try new things.


1 (15) oz. can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed or 1 1/2 c. cooked (i used sprouted garbanzo beans)

1/2 cup (packed in oil) julienned sun-dried tomatoes, oil drained

1/4 C. Veganaise

2 T. fresh chopped parsley

1 t. stone ground mustard

1/4 t. sea salt

handful of spinach or other veggies for toppings

4 whole grain tortillas

Using a potato masher or fork, mash your chickpeas in a medium bowl. Stir in the tomatoes, Vegenaise, parsley, mustard and sea sale. Spread 1/4 of the mixture on a tortilla, top with spinach and roll it up.
