Ingredients

  • 400 g (14oz) tin of chickpeas, drained and rinsed

For the Caesar dressing:

  • 50 g (1/3 cup) raw cashew nuts soaked overnight in cold water or in boiling water for 10 minutes
  • 3 teaspoons apple cider vinegar (ensure gluten-free if necessary)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon (Dijon) mustard
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup (or sub agave syrup)
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • Salt + pepper, to taste

To serve*:

  • 2 tortillas (ensure gluten-free if necessary)
  • Romaine or Cos lettuce, shredded
  • Red peppers, cut into matchsticks

Instructions

  • Place chickpeas in a bowl and mash with a fork or potato masher until broken into rough pieces (you can alternatively use a pestle and mortar)

For the Caesar dressing:

  • Add all ingredients for the dressing to a blender or food processor (a hand-held stick blender also works well) and whizz until completely smooth, adding little splashes of water until you achieve your desired consistency - it should be fairly runny but not too watery
  • Taste and adjust seasonings as necessary
  • Add the dressing to the chickpeas etc and mix well. Taste and add more salt if necessary

To serve:

  • Divide the mixture between the tortillas, add the lettuce and peppers and wrap by tucking in both sides then rolling
  • The chickpea Caesar salad (without lettuce) will keep for up to a couple of days covered in the fridge, and keeps well in the wrap for several hours

Notes

*Also delicious with coconut bacon or almond bacon added
