Spinach Wrap with Feta and Chickpeas makes the perfect midweek meal. The wraps are filled with feta spread, healthy chickpeas, and spinach. A great vegetarian dish which is ready in 15 minutes! Perfect to enjoy every day of the week and so easy to make.
We love everything in wrap form because you can eat it with your hands. Most of the time we eat in front of the TV, it’s a really bad habit, but I don’t have the willpower to change it and so everything which can be eaten with one hand or a fork is a winner for us.
In the last weeks Peter, my husband, developed a taste for chickpeas and now I’m experimenting to incorporate them more into our meals (have a look at my Chickpea Curry with Lime Rice Recipe). Chickpeas are a healthy and tasty addition to your diet, they are naturally low in fat, high in dietary fiber and rich in vitamins and minerals.
For this recipe, you can also use smaller tortillas and make Chickpea Tacos or make your own Tortillas.
The first layer of my Spinach Wrap is a feta yogurt mix. I love Feta, Feta is Greek for “slice”, it’s a white brined cheese and the texture is slightly grainy.
The real kind is made from sheep milk and is much better than those who are made with cows milk. I recommend you buy the real one, you won’t regret it. I use feta for many things! You can make an Easy 1-Minute Feta Cheese Dip or add it to a salad like in my Spicy Mango Feta Mache Salad or in my Balsamic Chickpea Feta Greek Salad.
You see I’m a big feta fan and always have one or two packets in my fridge because the unopened packet keeps fresh for months!
