Welcome to The New Blog’s FIRST recipe of 2015. It’s a good one. It’s easy. It’s filling. It’s cheap. It’s vegan.
Cajun Chickpea wraps.
You will need: 2 15 oz cans of chickpeas (makes 2-3 servings. 1 serving = two mini wraps)
A package of mini flour or corn tortillas
A package of hummus
Preheat your oven:
Next, open your garbanzo beans and rinse them. Spread them out on a baking sheet or pan:
Some people like it extra spicy. Like me. You can go easy on the Cajun Seasoning or go to town! You can also make your own blend with cayenne pepper, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
Throw that shizzle in the oven for 30 minutes.
While that’s cooking, you can warm up your tortillas either on a pan (no oil) for thirty seconds on each side, or heat them up in the toaster oven for about 5 minutes, wrapped in aluminum foil on 350 degrees.

I chose to make a baby spinach salad with this as this dinner is obviously requiring very little effort and I like to make sure I get some sort of greens in with every meal.
DING! they’re ready! Make sure to slap on some hummus (or tahini) in the tortilla. Then pour on some chickpeas!
I know. It seems like a small dinner. I ate two of these with the salad and I could barely finish my second one. The hubby ate three no problem. These are very filling and very tasty. They should be chewy and spicy. For vegetarians this is a viable option for when you are craving something substantial and full of protein.
Voila! Told you. Easiest Recipe Ever.
