Chickpea Salad Sandwich
Meal prep made easy with this simple mashed chickpea salad sandwich from The Simple Veganista. I love this simple vegetarian twist on traditional tuna/egg/chicken salad sandwich recipes.
Nutrition Tip: add some additional veggies to the chickpea salad mix, or serve with a side salad to keep things balanced.
Time Saving Tip: use pre-made hummus for a meal in minutes.
This recipe is so simple to make, and great for plant-based beginners. To make the chickpea salad, you’ll simply mash rinsed chickpeas with a fork and combine with remaining ingredients. That’s it! Use it in sandwiches, wraps, or salads.
