For Buffalo Chickpea Salad:

  • 2 cans chickpeas rinsed and drained
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise ensure the brand is vegan
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce I used Frank's
  • 1/3 cup celery chopped finely
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill
  • salt and pepper to taste

For Wraps:

  • 8 wraps I used whole wheat
  • lettuce
  • tomato cut in slices
  • red onion sliced thin
  • sprouts


  1. In a mixing bowl, add drained chickpeas and use a potato masher or backside of a fork to mash chickpeas. I like to slightly mash most of the chickpeas with having some in-tact.

  2. Add mayonnaise, hot sauce, chopped celery, and seasonings. Mix well using a rubber spatula. Taste and adjust seasonings as necessary.

To Make Wrap:

  1. Place lettuce on the lower third of wrap. Add about 1/4 cup of buffalo chickpea salad. Top with additional toppings.

  2. Roll wrap once. Fold in sides and wrap all the way.

Recipe Notes

Warm the wraps slightly before assembly. This will help prevent any cracks when trying to make the wrap!
