Smashed Chickpea and Avocado Sandwich | A Simple Vegan Lunch

Updated: Nov 21, 2019

One thing that I have found surprisingly difficult as a vegan, is finding easy lunches to bring to work. The smashed avocado and chickpea sandwich has become a huge staple in my lunch box. Healthy, simple to make, and seriously delicious.

Ingredients: For 2 sandwiches, use 1 can of chickpeas.

1 ripened avocado

Garlic Salt and Pepper

Bread of your choice

Vegan Mayo (I love Follow Your Heart- Veganese Mayo)

1 medium tomato from the vine

Leaf of your choice (I use spinach for protein)

  1. Drain can of chickpeas and add them to a medium sized mixing bowl. Scoop ripened avocado into bowl and use a fork to mash down your avocado and chickpeas. I usually will mash for about 3 minutes to get the above texture.

  2. Season with garlic salt and pepper. Mix together.

  3. Build your sandwich!

Wasn't that easy??

Pack it up with your favorite healthy sides and enjoy!
