Smashed Avocado & Chickpea Salad Sandwich

I love quick and easy lunch ideas, and this sandwich is a delicious alternative to a giant salad. It combines my favorite bean, chickpeas, with creamy avocado to make a delicious salad that could even be used as a dip. Another great vegan sandwich option is the Eggless Salad Sandwich. This is really delicious on a toasted English muffin, as well.

Smashed Avocado & Chickpea Salad Sandwich
Recipe type: Salad
Cuisine: American
  • 1 15-oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 large or 2 medium ripe avocados
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onion
  • Juice from 1 lime (I used a generous squeeze of lime juice)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper, Old Bay seasoning, or hot sauce (I like Old Bay seasoning)
  • Bread of your choice (I use 15-grain bread)
  • Handful of baby spinach
  1. Process chickpeas in food processor.
  2. Transfer to bowl and mix in avocado, green onion, lime juice, and salt and pepper. Stir until thoroughly combined.
  3. Add cayenne pepper, Old Bay or hot sauce as desired to add a little "zip." The salad is yummy and mellow without it, but I really felt it needed a little kick.
  4. Serve on bed of baby spinach on sandwich.
