These Rainbow Chickpea Wraps are filled with deliciously spiced roasted chickpeas and wrapped in a warm, home-made flatbread with garlic and herbs. Simply delicious!

Hey guys! It’s been too long since my last post here, sorry!! My 5 week trip to Thailand was truly amazing, and ever since I got back I’ve been extremely busy with my thesis… Only half a year to go and I’m done with my bachelor! Time flies when you’re having fun I suppose¬†ūüėČ

Before I went on my trip I actually made sure I had some recipes to share with you on the blog while I was on my trip, but in the end I was too busy enjoying my vacation to post them, so¬†in stead I’ll share them with you now.

These Rainbow Chickpea Wraps are filled with deliciously spiced roasted chickpeas and wrapped in a warm, home-made flatbread with garlic and herbs. Simply delicious!The first one is this delicious veggie-filled chickpea rainbow wrap. Chickpeas are a really cheap source of protein and fibers. Other than that they are full with vitamins and minerals, and chickpeas are especially high in manganese, copper and folate. Now, of course you can just eat a tub of hummus a day to get your daily protein intake, but that would be a bit boring I presume, so this is just a fun way to spice up your bean-recipe repertoire.

These wraps are filled with fresh, crunchy veggies, making it a bulky snack (or light meal) that may feel like a lot but is light on the kcals. This is also a perfect way to get some more veggies into your diet.
