The first thing Gav said after biting into this BBQ Chickpea wrap was – wait, this is totally a handheld salad.
Why has that thought never occurred to me before? Whoever thought of wraps was really onto something. It also made me realise that one of the best ways to get anyone to eat extra veggies is to disguise it in bread. Think about it – veggie sandwiches, Panzanella salads and even a veggie soup are all better with a little bread.

Recipes like these are the best kinds but they are so incredibly simple that it’s kind of like – how did I not have this in my recipe Arsenal before now? This came about from a craving for bbq chickpeas, a want for a quick dinner and lots of extra lettuce. 15 minutes later this easy wrap was born.
Apart from the delightful taste, there are several more reasons why I love this BBQ Chickpea Wrap:
  • It’s an easy lunch or picnic food
  • It’s also a quick dinner the first time I ate it
  • Great for on the go
  • Good for work or to be had cold since you don’t need to reheat it
  • Very easy to make
  • OH. I served it with an easy homemade ranch dressing, too.

I mean – bbq and ranch dressing kind of feel hand in hand to be honest. If you’re not feeling up to making the dip, that’s okay – you can check out a vegan ranch dressing and use that instead. If you are, I promise it is absolutely delicious and a sauce you’ll want to slather on pretty much everything.
That’s pretty much all I have to say for this beauty friends. I hope you enjoy it so much!

  • cup cooked chickpeas
  • 3 tablespoons bbq sauce
  • 2 cups lettuce washed, rinsed and chopped
  • 2 roma tomatoes finely chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 wraps
  • 5 tablespoons Homemade Oil-Free Ranch Dressing


BBQ Chickpeas

  • In a small pot over medium heat, place the chickpeas and 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce. Heat for about 5 minutes until warm and the sauce becomes sticky and coats the chickpeas.

    Remove from the heat and coat with the remaining barbecue sauce. If desired, you can add more barbecue sauce.

Assembling the Wraps

  • Per wrap:

    ⅓ cup bbq chickpeas
    1 cup lettuce
    1 roma tomato, finely chopped
    ½ lime
    1 wrap
    2 ½ tablespoons Ranch dressing

  • Heat ½ teaspoon olive oil or coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat (if possible, brush with a pastry brush).
    Place a wrap in the heat for about 30 seconds on each side to heat up. Or, microwave the wrap for about 15 to 30 seconds. Set on a plate to assemble.

    Layer with bbq chickpeas, lettuce, tomato and ranch dressing, then squeeze the juice of the lime over it all. Wrap up, cut in half, and enjoy! You can also serve the ranch dressing on the side.

    Hi Jessica,

    I am absolutely going to try this one! Your recipes never disappoint me. This looks great and easy to do. If it’s as good as your chickpea “tuna” sandwich, I’ll be very appreciative.
    Thanks again!

      These were so easy and everyone loved them – the 11 year old asked for more!! (I confess I used a bottled ranch, but next time I’ll make the dressing too!)

      • Gavin | Jessica in the Kitchen says:

        No problem at all Sarakeet. We’re just happy you enjoyed the recipe. Thanks so much for reading!

    An easy, healthy and delicious dish that can be adapted in many ways. It could be a salad and the bready aspect could be croutons and that would be good too. I really enjoyed this. Thanks for a good recipe!

    • Gavin | Jessica in the Kitchen says:

      Thank you Vivian! Yes we agree that the base ingredients can be used and adapted for different uses! We’re so glad you enjoyed it! Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment!

    Such a quick and easy meal, and surprisingly something I didn’t think to put together before. I usually save my chickpeas for currys, but adding bbq sauce (or really any other sauce – buffalo sauce + ranch, jerk sauce, etc) works and is a foolproof meal. + I like to add some cheese for a bit more fat

    • Jessica says:

      Thank you so much Shakti!! Love how versatile chickpeas are right?! So glad you enjoyed!!

    These bbq chic pea wraps are super easy to make and SO good! I’d never thought of adding bbq sauce to chic peas before, I cook with a lot of these beans and I usually lean toward curry flavors with them.The flavor and texture combos are perfect. Jessica’s recipes are my go to when I want to make something healthy and delicious!

    This was the first *intentionally* vegan meal I’ve made for my boyfriend and myself, and we both loved it! I picked this recipe specifically because it had easy ingredients and is suuuper low effort (even with making the ranch) and it was exactly what we needed today. I am so happy that my sister introduced me to your page and can’t wait to make more of your dishes!

    This BBQ chickpea wrap is a staple in our house! It is so delicious and is great for dinner or lunch. We use Thai BBQ sauce from a local business and the peanut flavor gives it a little kick.
