Yesterday I shared the recipe for my favorite Vegan Cilantro Ranch. And in that post, I promised I would be sharing some new recipes with you to use that dressing with. Well…here is the first one!

These BBQ Chickpea Lettuce Wraps are the perfect cold meal when you don’t feel like cooking, but want something quick and filling. They are seriously tasty – and they’re really giving my Chickpea Salad recipe a run for its money.

How to make the BBQ Chickpea filling

The filling for these lettuce wraps is super simple. Combine chickpeas, carrots, jalapeño, red onion, vegan mayo, BBQ sauce & spices in a big bowl. Let everything sit in the fridge for 30-60 minutes (to let the flavors meld) then it is time to assemble.

I’m not going to lie, the filling is pretty good on its own. BUT you know I am all about toppings and sauce, so I obviously had to amp these up with some extra goodies.

I went with avocado slices, radish slices (for some crunch), lime wedges, cilantro and, of course, the cilantro ranch.

These lettuce wraps are crunchy, savory and easily one of my new favorite recipes. You can also prep these ahead of time for lunch the next day. I would just hold off on assembling until you eat so your lettuce doesn’t get soggy.
