Garbanzo Beans Lettuce Wraps
This year I made a commitment to cooking more meals with variety. Like every busy family, we had fallen into a comfort zone and heavily relied on a short list of quick go-to recipes. With a very picky nine year old daughter, we weren’t helping her eating habits by only offering meals she already liked. Having a good stocked pantry with versatile foods like S&W Beans and a weekly visit to our farmer’s market makes it easy to incorporate new recipes each week. My Garbanzo Beans Lettuce Wraps recipe is quick to prepare with an alternative protein while easily getting in a serving of veggies packed full of flavor.
S&W Beans has a large variety and are found at your local grocery store. Garbanzo beans quickly became a new family favorite in our home and I’ve used several of the varieties including less sodium, organic and core. The brand has been producing canned beans for over 120 years and provides the highest quality for family meals. Whether it’s a Rice Bowl, One Pan Skillet Enchilada casserole or a pinned recipe you’re replacing the protein with beans, S&W Beans has the right variety to feature in your dinner.
Garbanzo Beans Lettuce Wraps recipe
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tsp garlic salt
- 1 can garbanzo beans
- 3 tbsp soy sauce
- 2 limes
- 1 c chopped avocado
- 1/4 c chopped cilantro
- 1 head butter lettuce
Heat olive oil in skillet over medium heat. Add garlic salt and garbanzo beans. Cover and cook for about 10 minutes on low heat until beans are soft. Stir occasionally while skillet is on stovetop.
While beans are cooking, prepare avocado, cilantro and lettuce. Chop avocado and cilantro. Wash and peel lettuce in full leaves.
Add soy sauce to beans, cover and continue to cook for about 3 minutes on low heat while stirring occasionally. Squeeze lime juice over cooked beans.
Place a spoonful of cooked garbanzo beans on lettuce leaf. Garnish with avocado and cilantro.

This recipe looks amazing and I need to try it asap! I have so many garbanzo bean cans in the house and I love to try different recipes. I usually make them into hummus and also make them crunchy in the oven as a snack. The entire family enjoys them and since they are a healthy option, I like finding new ways to enjoy them. Thank you!
There are so many great ways to use garbanzo beans! This one is a new family favorite!
What a great, refreshing recipe for the spring! I never really ate garbanzos other than in hummus. I would love to give this a try!
This is definitely a new way to use them, yummy!
Yum! These look really good, and so easy to make. Our teenage daughter is vegan, so we are always looking for new recipes to try. There are days we don’t have a lot of time for meal prep, and this will be perfect to try on one of those days.
My daughter is very picky but I can’t imagine adding that layer of challenge while cooking family meals! I hope she likes these.
Mmm, garbanzo beans can make any meal for me! I love this as a meatless recipes and have pinned it!
I always scan a salad bar for these when I am deciding on the meal!
Excellent recipe, thank you!
These seasoned garbanzo beans would be a delicious salad topping too!
This is a great and easy recipe fr the Vegans in my life of which there are quite a few. I use garbanzo beans in a lot of recipes including making hummus almost every day. I hadn’t thought about using them for a wrap.
They are such a versatile bean and can be used in so many different recipes!
This recipe looks incredibly healthy and delicious. I really enjoy lettuce wraps and when I can I try and experiment with new ingredients and new recipes. The ingredients you used reminds me of fresh taco toppings.
The garnish definitely adds a layer of flavor. They really are a great light meal for spring!
I just loved that you used the low-sodium versions of the beans. I’ve been trying to cut my sodium and so many canned products are not something I can use. The recipe sure sounds good and also healthy.
So much has sodium and it’s great there’s a way to easily cut back but still enjoy yummy food!
Looks like a really healthy recipe. I’m always trying to find new ways to eat healthy. I’m glad the beans are low sodium. It seems like so much of the foods we eat today have a lot of sodium.
These are an awesome way to have a healthy meal but not lose the flavor!
This looks good, We have been trying to eat less meat and I think I will try this today for Taco Tuesday (meatless) but still with a good amount of protein, I hope my son likes it. It looks great and easy to make, so I am in for it.
This would be an excellent Taco Tuesday addition!
Hmmm…noms! Anything avocado is *love*! SUch a healthy treat, I do hope I get the time to make these, as they really look yummy! I wonder if beef would be a good match, when we do korean grill at home, we use some of your ingredients in here, too – so I’m sure it’s yummy with beef too!
