To Make the Spinach Wraps:
- Combine flour, salt, and oil in a bowl. Mix until mixture becomes crumbly. Rinse spinach and dry the leaves.
- Purée spinach with water using and immersion blender or a regular blender.
- Pour spinach water into flour mixture. Knead the dough for 5 minutes. The dough should be smooth and pliable. If it’s crumbly add a splash of water, if it’s too sticky add some flour.
- Mold the dough into ball and cover it with plastic wrap. Set the dough into the refrigerator while you do the other preparations, about 20 minutes.
- When dough has rested, divide it to six equal portions. Mold portions into small balls. Roll each ball into a thin circle (about 7 inches in diameter).
- Preheat a cast iron skillet. Cook the tortillas on a dry skillet, about 30 seconds per side. Put warm tortillas under a clean kitchen towel to keep them soft.
To Make the Chickpea Avocado Filling:
- Mix all the ingredients together. Take about third of the mixture aside and purée it with an immersion blender. Add pureed mixture back to other ingredients and stir to combine.

- Spread some avocado and chickpea filling in the middle of tortilla and top it with carrots, red cabbage, spinach, and cilantro.
