Vegan Chickpea "Tuna" salad wraps

If you think you'll miss tuna when you become vegan, Then this is definitely the recipe for you.
Chickpeas are a great alternative for tuna and have a very similar texture to it which is great.
These wraps are very flavourful and you can even use the salad as a sandwich filling.
The ingredients are very affordable and easy to obtain.


1 pk of wraps 
1 tin of chickpeas (drained and washed)
1/2 tsp of Himalayan salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp curry powder
1 tbs Nutritional yeast
vegan mayo as needed 
sriracha to taste
Romaine lettuce as needed
Cherry tomatoes as needed (cut in half) 
Cucumber as needed ( cut into quarters)
Vegan cheese (grated)

Drain and wash the chickpeas and add to a large bowl.
Now add all the dry ingredients to the chickpeas and using a potato masher, mash the chickpeas to get the texture of tuna flakes.
Now add the tomatoes, cucumber, mayo, sriracha and cheese and mix gently until all the ingredients are incorporated. 
Now that the salad is ready, heat the wraps on a medium heat for 2 minutes on a flat pan.
Assemble the wraps by laying a leaf of romaine lettuce in the center and then spooning the salad on top of it.
Fold your wrap and enjoy.

You can make many variations of this salad, let your imagination run wild :)
