Chickpea, Bell Pepper, & Pesto Wrap

 We’ve been trying to think of ideas for all of this basil we’ve been getting from our CSA lately.  After a couple of batches of pesto in recent weeks (made with basil, garlic scapes, pine nuts, nutritional yeast, and water), we tried something new; a chickpea, bell pepper, & pesto wrap.  It was pretty good and was a fresh compliment to our baked sweet potato fries.
