Barbecue Chickpea Wrap

Perhaps you are finding yourself in a bit of a lunch rut, staring down that same turkey sandwich or salad every day.  Or you might be in need of a very quick and simple dinner.

This is another Pinterest inspired recipe from here.  For the past few weeks I've been cooking a pound of chickpeas at the beginning of the week.  Half goes into the huge quantities of hummus I've been making, and the rest are for recipes, salad toppers and snacking.

Of course, this is just one of a million ways you can use chickpeas in a wrap.  Add them to pretty much any flavor combination for a good protein and fiber source.  Keep these ingredients and swap out the barbecue sauce for hot sauce for a buffalo flavor, add them in to Greek salad ingredients, or use them in place of chicken or tuna for salads.
