Vegan Chickpea Salad Sandwich Recipe

Ever since I did my detox two months ago, I have been eating less meat. I love meat. I truly love the taste of it but I realized while detoxingΒ that I felt lighter and overall better when I ate less of it.

Since I’m married to a big meat eater and what to keep things easy, I have been saving dinner to enjoy roasted turkey or a big juicy hamburger. My lunch options is where I have been skipping the meat and eating more plant based foods. I am loving it. But I was starting to get bored with black beans which is my go too choice of protein. Thankfully, I dug into my recipe archive and re-discovered my vegan chickpea sandwich spread.

Oh, after remaking this, I don’t know how I ever forgot about it? But it’s back. This recipe won’t be forgotten again. Luckily for you, I’m going to share this simple, easy, dairy-free and vegan recipe.

Are you ready for a delicious and easy lunch? It is also a perfect afternoon snack with crackers. πŸ™‚Β Great! First, let’s get some eye candy.

I actually eat this delightful chickpea salad sandwich spread on top of a mound of spring mix greens. But it tastes awesome on a toasted bun. πŸ™‚ It’s also prettier to photograph on a bun.

Creamy, sweet, crunchy and a hint of garlic is what your mouth will be savoring when you make this chickpea salad sandwich. My almost 2 year old son, won’t have anything to do with tuna salad, but he devours this vegan chickpea salad sandwich.

  1. Just wanted you to know you are an inspiration to me. I’m a great grandmother and grew up eating meat and potatoes meals and have had to change eating habits as we have aged and developed health issues. It is easy to eat what is quick to make and foods we both like to the exclusion of other healthy foods. But to hear your numerous food allergies and your determination to feed your family well with healthy food is a great encouragement. Thank you for sharing all your recipes and for being an inspiration.

    1. Hey Robin, have you tried Schar hamburger buns or ciabatta rolls? They are very delicious. I also LOVE BFree gluten-free bread. I haven’t tried their buns or rolls but their bread loaf is outstanding. Both are vegan. πŸ™‚

  2. Bonjour Allison, I dwelt in your recipe book when received and
    followed your instructions for the “no-bake energy balls” and also your “health-bar” recipes. Good items to lower my sweet cravings. Good luck. I will try your vegan chickpea sandwich spread and keep you posted on the results. Claudette, a “loon”atic from Quebec Canada.

    1. Claudette, that is so great to hear. I love that this recipes are satisfying your sweet tooth in a healthy way. πŸ™‚

  3. Dear Allison,
    Thank you for acknowledging my comment. Trying and using your recipes is one right step to establish, but one with a craving sweet tooth like I have, should work also on the volume ingested at one time. Perhaps I will choose to take one a day and select a fruit, much more healthy, for other needs at other craving times during the day.
    Mes salutations.

  4. Allison, problem is I hate chickpeas, but it sounded good for a while. Wonder how white beans would work? LYCF

  5. I like the idea f glutean free, but can’t have flour either. Had gf paster one day for lunch, and bs spiked 200 points. Bummer
