CHUNKY CHICKPEA RAINBOW WRAPS

This is something I’ve been taking with me nearly every day for college lunches. It’s so quick and easy to prepare on a Sunday night and stores in the fridge all week, meaning you have minimal work to do in the morning! The chickpeas are full of fibre and protein to keep you full til dinner. Also, they make the tastiest hummus sauce in this recipe. I even sometimes eat it as a side salad with some sweet potato/pitta bread or just on its own for a quick light bite. Some suggestions of how you can customise it are below too!
