Instructions

Chick Pea and Sweet Potato Bites

  1. Add all the ingredients for the bites to a food processor and process on high for 3-5 minutes, or until the mixture is smooth.
  2. Place the mixture in the fridge for 2 hours, allowing it to firm up. (This makes it easier to roll the mixture into balls).
  3. Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees and place a sheet of parchment paper on a large baking sheet. Remove the chick pea mixture from the fridge and roll into balls. (Try to keep the balls small. If they are too large, they will flatten slightly while baking. I usually get about 30 bites from this recipe).
  4. Bake for 10-15 minutes until the bottoms are browned. Remove from oven, turn the bites over and bake on the other side for another 8-10 minutes.

Mango Chipotle Sauce

  1. Add the honey, mango and vinegar to a blender and blend on high until smooth (30 – 60 seconds).
  2. Add the honey/mango mixture to a small sauce pan. Add the lime juice and chipotle pepper. Bring to a boil on low heat.
  3. Meanwhile, combine the water and tapioca starch in a small bowl and stir until smooth. Once the honey/mango mixture is boiling, reduce heat to simmer and gradually stir in the tapioca starch mixture. Stir until the sauce thickens. Remove from heat.

Wraps

  1. Lay out the lettuce leaves and layer on the shredded carrot, zucchini and red pepper. I used a julienne peeler to shred the veggies. Add three chick pea and sweet potato bites to each wrap and drizzle a spoonful of mango chipotle sauce over the bites. Enjoy!

Notes

  1. You can make the chick pea and sweet potato bites ahead of time and re-heat when ready to assemble the wraps. To keep the bites crispy, re-heat in the oven for 5-10 minutes on 350. (You can also freeze the bites for later use).
