      Drain and rinse both cans of chickpeas.

      Place chickpeas in a food processor and puree in 5-10 second increments. You do not want to turn the chickpeas into a mash, you simply want to grind them into pieces.

      Spoon a healthy serving of chickpea mixture onto lettuce wraps and serve immediately. Drizzle with sirachi sauce if desired.

      Quick, easy, and flavorful... a great combo. I served with healthy homemade version of egg drop soup for a nice veg-friendly meal. Thanks for sharing! PAC Spring '12
