Today, we are going to make the most delicious veggie wrap known to man. The focus on getting a balanced meal is always important and this wrap won’t disappoint. This is one of those “must try” recipes, especially if you’ve never tried combining warm chickpeas with goat cheese. And we don’t stop there! Adding in cumin and fresh parsley brings the flavor over the top. Let’s get it…

Sensei’s Tip of the Day

Always choose a lower sodium chicken or vegetable stock because you can always add more salt later. The recommended daily allowance of sodium is 2500mg.
