Smashed Vegan Chickpea Salad Sandwich

This vegan chickpea salad sandwich recipe is so incredibly easy and delicious!

It only needs one bowl, some basic and healthy ingredients, 10 minutes and a dash of vegan mayo.

I absolutely love simple salad recipes like this to toss on top of bread for a quick and no-fuss meal.

It’s perfect for busy week days, meal prepping, picnics, and just busy lives in general!

Vegan Chicken Salad

This recipe has just a handful of ingredients and they are all held together with a bit of vegan mayo.

You can find dairy-free mayo at many stores these days, but if you’d like to make your own I also found this vegan mayonnaise recipe.

The rest are just some basic veggies and onion, and of course a good bit of chickpeas.

This recipe has a nice robust dill flavor, thanks to some added dill pickles and extra dill herb.

Chicken and tuna salad sandwiches are very common recipes, but you’ll be amazed at how delicious smashed chickpeas can be as an alternative.

They offer protein and have a great texture for these kind of recipes.

Even if you’re not vegan or vegetarian, chickpeas are a great ingredient to switch things up and try something new!

This recipe is also very versatile and you can add in any other ingredients that you’d like.

I’ve made this with grapes, a bit of mustard, and slivered almonds and all were great additions!

How to Make One Bowl Chickpea Salad 

Preparing the Ingredients

When I’m making this chickpea salad recipe I like to prepare all of my ingredients right away and then just assemble them in a large bowl.

The first step is to drain your chickpeas and add them to a large bowl, and then mash them with a potato masher (or a couple forks if that’s all you have).

I like to leave a little texture and not mash all the beans.

Then I chop the celery, pickles, red onion and cilantro and juice my lime.
