Curried Chickpea Veggie Wrap is my favorite “on-the-go” lunch. It is full of flavors and nutrients too! And it is so easy to make it when you have all the ingredients already prepared in your fridge. You need just a minute to throw it all together, and you are ready to go! This wrap is vegan and vegetarian, and so easy to make. You can add some of my roasted veggies and curry hummus to this wrap for extra nutrients and deliciousness!

Ingredient Selection Tips
Always choose whole grain, wheat, or quinoa tortilla wrap. Find the one with the least preservatives possible and the highest fiber content. If you are on a gluten-free diet, there are some tortilla wraps that use buckwheat, oat, rye flour, or corn instead. However, you may have to buy them from a specialty store. Avoid buying gluten-free wraps that include lots of artificial preservatives and additives.
Baby Kale or Spinach
If you are buying greens in the supermarket, packed in a bag, make sure to choose bright green leaves that aren’t wilted. Always try to buy organic, as spinach and kale are some of the highest vegetables that have pesticides in them or ensure to wash well before consuming.
