Sweet Potato Chickpea Wraps with Mango Avocado Salsa

Note: This is not a fully raw recipe. This is a transitional recipe. Part cooked, part raw, 100% nutritious and delicious!

It’s getting hot in California. Summer is truly here.  And when the temps rise, I become obsessed with lettuce wraps. There is something so refreshing about biting into that crunchy lettuce leaf. It’s so much lighter than a traditional wrap or bun. Perfect for summer! Today I am bringing you a vegan, gluten free recipe that uses cooked sweet potato and chickpeas, combined with a wonderful raw mango avocado salsa. It is a perfect topping for delicious patties!

There is something magical that happens when you combine sweet potato and chickpeas. The flavors compliment each other so well. And the textures are dreamy! Sweet potatoes are loaded with fiber and nutrients. Chickpeas are high on the list of good for you foods, too. I spiced up these little patties with chipotle and smoked paprika, and topped them with a delicious mango avocado salsa. Romain lettuce leaves provide wrap. Enjoy!

    Dear Susan,
    When you write “2 cups cooked chickpeas”, I hope that these two cups are the measure of the chickpeas before we cook them. Otherwise, how do I know the quantity of chickpeas to cook in order to have two cups after ?

      Hi, Blaise, if it says “cooked” chickpeas, you would measure cooked chickpeas. Beans cook up about 1:3. So, a cup of dry chickpeas should make 3 cups of cooked. Cheers!

    How do these taste cold? I’d like to make them ahead and bring them to a Bbq.

    Are these patties freezable? Part of the raw / vegan eating is the difficulty of preparation. I am looking for freezable or weekly store-able dishes. These look lovely just trying to get the prep work down.

      Hi, Mamie, Yes, I have frozen them successfully. Cheers!

    Silly question, but do you leave the skin on the potato when processing it? Or should I take the skin off?

      Hi, Megan, It’s not a silly question. I did peel the sweet potato. Cheers!
