Tasty Vegan Shawarma Wraps

If you love middle eastern food then you will LOVE these vegan Shawarma’s! Heck, if you don’t know what middle eastern food tastes like you will still love these. These are easy to make, however, they are a bit time consuming and worth every second of prep.

This is one of those meals I like to prep in the morning to let everything marinate and then come dinner time, cook it up.

These wraps consist of the “meat” which I chose chickpeas for, the yogurt sauce, and the slaw. I think you really need all of these components to make the flavors come together.

I always make my own flatbread because it’ SO amazing. It’s not my recipe but I will put the link here if you want to make your own, but you definitely don’t have to.

I am always looking for dinners to switch things up and this one certainly fit that bill. My 9 year old loved these and my 6-year-old did not. The rest of us LOVED it.

If you don’t want to use chickpeas you could certainly use soy curls.

What do you need to make these Tasty Vegan Shawarma Wraps?

  • lemon juice, fresh
  • neutral oil or olive oil
  • garlic
  • coriander
  • cumin
  • 1 smoked paprika
  • tsp salt
  • 1 black pepper
  • 2 cans chickpeas, rinsed, drained and mostly crushed
  • Kite hill, plain vegan yogurt
  • 2-3 cups red shredded cabbage
  • 1 tbs parsley, dried
  • soft flatbread
  • tomatoes, chopped
  • cucumbers, diced

How do you make it?

**This meal is best made in the morning and put in the fridge to marinate and finish cooking at dinner time.

Take your rinsed and drained chickpeas and smash them with a potato masher or a pastry cutter. You want it to be a rough smash. Set these aside.

Take a small bowl and combine the marinade ingredients and stir.

Now pour your marinade onto the smashed chickpeas and stir until mixed well. Cover and stick in the fridge for at least 2 hours preferably all day.

Take a small bowl and combine the yogurt ingredients and stir. Cover this and place it in the fridge as well.

Now make your slaw. Take a medium bowl and combine all slaw ingredients and stir until well combined. Cover and place in the fridge until ready to serve.

Once the marinating time is over take a medium non-stick skillet and place the chickpeas in it on medium heat. Cook this stirring as needed until the chickpeas brown a bit, this takes around 10-12 minutes.

Now you are ready to start assembling them.

Take a soft wrap and place some chickpea mixture, slaw, cucumbers, tomatoes, and drizzle with the yogurt sauce and serve.
