Vegetarian Greek Lettuce Wraps

Ingredients:

8 ounces feta cheese 

1 cup of plain, non-fat Greek yogurt

2 teaspoons dill

2 teaspoons parsley 

2 teaspoons thyme 

1 garlic clove  

Iceberg lettuce or romaine hearts 

2 cans of chickpeas, drained and rinsed 

1 cup of chopped tomatoes 

1 cup chopped cucumbers

1 cup chopped artichoke hearts 

1 shallot, minced 

1 tablespoon capers (optional) 

2 lemons

Olive oil 

Crushed red pepper (optional) 

Salt and pepper, to taste

 

Serving size- 4

Approximate time to make- 15 minutes

 

Directions:

1. Start by cleaning and prepping your lettuce wraps. Remove the outer layer of the lettuce and then peel off each piece one by one. Wash, dry and set aside in the fridge to chill.

2. Next, make your herbed feta spread. Add the feta, Greek yogurt, herbs, garlic clove and 1/4 teaspoon of salt and pepper to a food processor (plus a pinch of crushed red pepper if you like a little heat). Pulse until smooth then taste for seasonings. Set aside.

3. Then, add the chickpeas, tomatoes, cucumbers, artichokes, shallot, and capers to a bowl. Season with the juice of 2 lemons, 2-3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt and pepper. Mix and taste for seasonings. 

4. Now we assemble! Spread a generous portion of your feta dip to the bottom of each lettuce wrap and then fill with your chickpea mixture. Finish with a squeeze of lemon juice and enjoy!
