Roasted Buffalo Chickpea Wraps

Serves 4

Active Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (15-ounce can) no-salt-added chickpeas, rinsed
  • 1/4 cup whole-milk plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 cups chopped red leaf or romaine lettuce
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrot
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced celery
  • 4 (8-inch) spinach or whole-wheat wraps

1. Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat to 400 F.

2. Combine vinegar, cayenne and salt in a large bowl. Very thoroughly pat chickpeas dry, then toss with the vinegar mixture. Spread on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast the chickpeas, stirring twice, until browned and crunchy, 30 to 35 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, combine yogurt and hot sauce in a small bowl. Stir in blue cheese.

4. Divide lettuce, carrot and celery among wraps. Top each with 1/4 cup of the chickpeas and 2 tablespoons sauce. Roll up. Cut in half to serve, if desired.

Make-ahead tips: The chickpeas will stay crisp for 2 to 4 hours at room temperature; if stored longer, re-crisp at 400 F for 5 to 10 minutes.
