Avocado & Chickpea Salad Sandwich

My go-to healthy lunch is this Avocado Chickpea Salad Sandwich! With green onion, cilantro & lime, it's ideal for quick & easy vegan sandwiches.

This is my new favorite lunch. I saw this recipe onΒ Two Peas & Their Pod a couple of weeks ago and made it right away. And then I made it again the next day… and then the next day after that…

As creative as I like to get at dinnertime, there’s something comforting (and probably a little OCD) about eating the same thing for lunch day in and day out.

Beyond the sandwich, I’ve also been eating scoopfuls of this over mixed greens with chopped cucumbers and other veggies. And this summer, I’ll likely be serving it poolside with chips and margaritas.

You can find the recipe here. The only thing I changed was that I happened to have a lemon and not a lime, so I squeezed lemon juice in mine instead.

Is anyone else stuck on a particular lunchtime kick?

  3. I’m not a big sandwich fan, but chickpeas and avocado? I could get into that.

  6. Oh my, this sounds like a welcome change from egg salad! I’ve been on an avocado binge lately, I can’t get too much of it and I love to try it in all kinds of new ways. This sandwich sounds too good to be true – can’t wait to try it!

    I’m the same way with my lunches…I am so boring when it comes to lunch time! This sandwich looks amazing…I love meatless meals too so definitely going to be trying this out πŸ™‚

  8. I LOVE avocados, and am always looking for new ways to use them. Many thanks for the recipe!

    This looks great! Secretly, I love bringing peanut butter (freshly ground from honey roasted peanuts) and jelly for lunch. Shhhh. And on days that I bring something else, I find myself craving a good ol’ PB&J.

    Thanks for sharing this! I put the filling in little corn tortillas and topped it with salsa – also really tasty as tacos!

    Yes! This looks very yummy. I too do a different dinner every night (most nights anyway) but I will eat the same thing for lunch 3 days in a row. Lately it has been a Israeli cous cous salad with tomatoes, chickpeas and lemons.

      mmm, sounds good… love the idea of it with the mustard!

    This recipe made me so hungry, I left work for an early lunch to go make this! I didn’t have any cilantro so I diced up a red onion and used lemon juice instead of lime. It was absolutely incredible!

    We made it twice this week! It works with lemon but is definitely better with lime. Thanks for the healthy suggestions for 2015.

    I made this today for lunch and it was the most delicious thing I’ve eaten since beginning a plant-based-diet four months ago! I ate it on thinly sliced toasted sourdough bread. YUM!!
