DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
  • Add 1 tbsp of olive oil to a pan and heat.
  • Add the chickpeas and let cook over medium heat for 3-4 minutes, continuously stirring so as not to burn.
  • Add remaining ingredients, except basil, and stir. Cook over low heat for 10 minutes, stirring occassionally.
  • If using basil leaves, add them and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring the basil in and allowing it to wilt.
  • Wash lettuce leaves and pat dry.
  • Spoon a healthy serving of chickpea mixture onto lettuce wraps and serve immediately. Drizzle with sirachi sauce if desired.
