Curried Chickpea Wraps

Prep Time15 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 large carrots shredded
  • 1 18 oz can chickpeas about 2 cups cooked, rinsed and well drained
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon garam masala curry spice
  • 2 tablespoons currants soaked in hot water to plump and drained, then chopped
  • 1/4 of mayo plus more to your taste
  • 2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar
  • pinch of salt

Instructions

  • If you haven't already, poor some hot water over the currants so they plump up a bit before you drain and chop them.
  • In a skillet, warm oil over medium heat. Add garlic, garam marsala and carrots. Saute until carrots are soften. About 5 minutes. Stir in green onions and remove from heat.
  • In a food processor, add chickpeas and pulse several times until coarsely chopped. (Alternatively, you could mash the chickpeas in a bowl with a fork).
  • Transfer mashed chickpeas to a large bowl. Add carrot mixture, salt, mayo, chopped currants and rice wine vinegar. Blend well. Taste for seasonings.
  • Serve in a wrap or in lettuce leaves.

Notes

Garam Masala is a sweet curry powder spice mix, typically found in most grocery stores. Any mild curry powder will do.
Substitute raisins for currants
