MOROCCAN STYLED CHICKPEA & CAULIFLOWER WRAPS


Ooh these delicious Moroccan styled wraps can't be described; they must be tasted to appreciate the layers of flavor in every bite. Chickpeas and tomatoes are simmered in Moroccan Spice while the cumin and tumeric spiced cauliflower gets roasted(I used my airfryer). I topped the wraps with pickled red onions, vegan feta cheese, mango chutney and tahini cream sauce. Extraordinarily yum!
