Wraps with creamy chickpea and tuna spread July 11, 2011

Summertime is the time for picnics on the beach and these wraps are the perfect sandwich to pack in your picnic basket! Of course you can enjoy them in the comfort of your own home if that’s what you prefer…Either way, they’re delicious and healthy too!

(4 large wraps)


4 (25 cm/10 in) flour tortillas
2 bell peppers (any color) (sliced)
2 tomatoes (sliced)
1 cucumber (sliced)

For the spread:
400 g (14 oz) canned chickpeas (rinsed and drained)
200 g (7 oz) canned tuna in water or brine (well drained and flaked with a fork)
100 g  feta cheese (cubed)
1-2 cloves of garlic
1 tbsp olive oil
0.5 tsp salt
0.5 tsp black pepper
1 tsp oregano
1 tbsp fresh or frozen chives (finely chopped)

1. Mix all of the ingredients for the spread (except for the chives) in a food processor or using a hand mixer until smooth.
2. Stir in the chives.
3. Spread on tortillas with bell pepper, tomato and cucumber slices and roll up.
4. Serve immediately or pack them in a picnic basket for later! 🙂

(Tip: Don’t like tuna? Try this spread without tuna for a delicious vegetarian alternative!)

(Tip 2: Use lettuce instead of bread for a wrap that is lower in carbs!)

  1. I love a good wrap, and this definitely is the type of lightweight wrap you want on a hot day. Very nice
