I’m a creature of habit when it comes to breakfast and lunch. At least on weekdays. Oats for breakfast and some kind of veggie sandwich or veggie wrap for lunch are the norm. Maybe it’s the Steve Jobs mindset – if I have a uniform when it comes to these meals, I’m more efficient and can devote brain power to more pressing decisions.

At least that’s how I rationalize food ruts!

But I have a new sandwich to love, and it still checks all the boxes. Vegetarian? Check. Protein packed? Check. Easy to make? Check. Super delicious? Check!

Chickpea Salad Sandwich Recipe

This chickpea salad sandwich is a mash up of my favorite hummus wrap and my go-to tuna salad sandwich when I was a little girl. It starts by mashing canned chickpeas until it’s chunky and adding all the mix-ins for texture and flavor.

Step by step instructions to make a chickpea salad sandwich with feta.

Red onion, roasted red pepper, crushed pistachios, and green onions add crunch, and I use vegan mayo to bind it all together. At this point, it’s technically vegan, but I can’t help but add tangy, salty feta cheese for extra flavor. If you want a vegan version, just leave out the cheese!

As with any sandwich, toppings make it even better, so definitely add some of your favorite leafy greens! I also love thinly sliced cucumber for extra crunch, and another sprinkling of feta!

    This was good, although I tweaked it a little, omitting the raw onions, and using onion salt, and adding homemade chutney along with the roasted bell peppers. BUT-really wish the nutrition information was easier to understand!! If I used 1/4 C, how many calories? how much carbohydrates? protein? fiber?

      Hi Kay-lynne – I’m glad you enjoyed the recipe, and I loved how you added homemade chutney, too! I totally understand how you feel about the nutrition information. The program that I use to estimate nutritional values is a very handy tool and provides an estimate — I can not say its degree of accuracy but provide it as a general guideline. It is calculated per serving (this recipe yields 2 servings). I hope this helps!
