Chickpea Salad Sandwiches

Chickpea Salad Sandwiches

Vegan Chickpea Salad Sandwiches – a nutritious sandwich made with hearty chickpeas, earthy tahini, bright lemon, crisp veggies, multigrain bread, and it’s layered with all your favorite toppings. If you love hummus you will also love and appreciate all the similar depth of flavor found in this sandwich! And if you aren’t a hummus fan I’ve listed an option to make it taste similar to tuna salad instead, with a creamy mayo base (which can also be made vegan). Either way you can’t go wrong with this recipe.

It’s nutritious, easy to prepare, and it’s perfectly filling thanks to those protein filled and fiber rich chickpeas (plus the fiber found in the whole grain bread). Just like many other similar salads you can serve it in bread, wraps, pita pockets, lettuce leaves, or serve atop avocados, crackers, pita chips, or just eat it plain on its own.

There’s so much to love about this versatile, simple, and satisfying chickpea salad sandwich!
