‘We go together like avocado and literally anything’
Hello readers 🙂
Ask any vegan whats the one food they can’t live without, I bet they say avocado.
I have always been obsessed with avocado, but while transitioning to veganism, it’s like my appreciation has grown to a whole new level for this fruit (yes fruit – did anyone else think it was a vegetable? lol) Avocados are so versatile, they are great with so many dishes like pastas, salads and even pizzas. Smoothies, breakfast, lunch and dinner – there is always room for avocado.
As much as I love my vegan chili, I’ve been eating it for a few days now and I need to switch it up a bit. I made this delicious lemony, chickpea and avocado wrap last night for a quick dinner and it hit the spot. I try and avoid eating too much bread and will always choose a wrap option if available. I found these excellent garden veggie wraps by Tumaros in waitrose only 60 calories a wrap. (in case you were wondering why my wraps are green).
Chickpeas are not something I eat a lot of, I find them quite bland so the lemon juice shakes things up a bit. I’ve been doing my research and 1 tablespoon of cooked chick peas only contains 46 calories and 0.8g of fat. There is some protein and iron in there too – I think I will start experimenting with them more (prepare for incoming chickpea spam lol)
This is a fab little skinny vegan wrap recipe – doesn’t take long to make either, just some mashing up of ingredients. Also, there are only 6 ingredients. I love anything that only needs 6 ingredients or less.
Easy peasy vegan wraps – let me know if you love it! & have a good Tuesday. Jess xx
