1Ā medium cucumber
Ā½Ā teaspoonĀ (plus a couple pinches) of saltĀ divided
1Ā medium tomatoĀ diced
1/4Ā red onionĀ diced
1/4Ā green pepperĀ diced
4Ā tablespoonsĀ chopped kalamata olives
1Ā jarĀ (540 grams / 19 oz) chickpeasĀ 
200Ā gramsĀ (7 oz) vegan yogurt (I used soy)
2Ā tablespoonsĀ chopped fresh dill
1Ā cloveĀ of garlicĀ minced
1Ā tablespoonĀ lemon juice
PepperĀ to taste
2Ā cupsĀ (112 grams) chopped lettuceĀ 
4Ā large tortillas


Grate half the cucumber and sprinkle it with a pinch of salt. Place it in a strainer over a bowl and leave it to drain while you chop all your veggies. Also dice the other half of the cucumber. Combine the diced cucumber, tomato, red onion, green pepper, and black olives.

Drain and rinse the chickpeas and put them in a bowl. Smash them with your hands or with a fork.

Squeeze as much water out of the grated cucumber as possible. In a bowl combine the grated cucumber, vegan yogurt, dill, garlic, lemon juice and a pinch of salt and pepper.

Add 3 tablespoons of the tzatziki to the smashed chickpeas along with Ā½ teaspoon of salt and pepper. Mix well.

Make the wraps with a handful of lettuce, smashed chickpeas, mixed diced vegetables and a few dollops of tzatziki. If you like you can toast the finished wraps in a dry pan over medium-high heat. Start seam side down to keep them from unwrapping.
