Chickpea, Sweet Potato & Avocado Freezer Wraps4

Lunch has always been a pain in the ass for me. I hate putting together make-ahead lunches mostly because they tend to be boring and bland, and I run out of inspiration in no time. However, when I worked in construction three summers ago (yes, I did!) I found out real quick that I had to get creative and switch things up. Working up to 15 hours a day with no entertainment or real breaks, food was one of my only comforts and enjoyments, so lunches had to be easy and delicious.?

I always reminisce about that crazy summer job right around this time of year because it’s the same time that I flew out to Alberta to begin an adventure of a lifetime. I’m even writing my thesis for graduate school inspired by this job! As I reflect on everything I learned that summer, I became inspired to recreate a version of one of my favourite lunches on the job: whole-wheat veggie wraps! And this time, I’ve made them so they’re freezer-friendly. These Chickpea, Sweet Potato & Avocado Freezer Wraps are the perfect addition to your list of grab and go lunch ideas and they are easily made vegetarian or gluten free with the right planning.?

I absolutely love mashed chickpeas – it’s a unique twist with lots of protein and packed with flavour! I incorporated my own mashed chickpea recipe from my Broccoli, Couscous and Mashed Chickpea Bowls as an easy chickpea salad type of filling for these wraps that you can use elsewhere – in sandwiches, bowls, on its own…the options are limitless!

Another reason I love these wraps is because they are incredibly nutritious and contain a variety of vegetables. This recipe is also very versatile – if you don’t have some of the ingredients on hand, don’t worry. Just use whatever you’ve got lying around in your fridge!?

Though packing a lunch can be annoying, the right amount of meal planning can help. Did you know that weet potato avocado freeze surprisingly well? It’s surprising how much time you can save by making a big batch of meals ahead of time. I also love creating freezer meals because you can enjoy them a little bit at a time – you don’t have to worry about using up all your leftovers in a week.?

The roasted sweet potato adds a new level of flavour to these wraps, and blends with the smooth, creaminess of the avocado and mashed chickpeas. I added in a little bit of turkey bacon for some smokiness and extra crunch but you can easily leave it out to make this wrap vegetarian.

    I would definitely love to make these for lunches, I usually just end up bringing leftovers! I didn’t know that you could freeze avocado either! Also the garlic mayo sounds like the perfect sauce to put on these. Thanks for sharing 🙂

      Thanks Kathryn! I agree I’m becoming more and more fond of Dijon mustard over time – it blends so well with the chickpea mash and the turmeric!

    Okay, I totally agree. My make ahead lunches are ham sandwiches. Every single day. I have no time to think up something cool to make, and no time to make it! But I have never thought to put some wraps in the freezer for when you need it. This is GENIUS! Will try this soon!
