Vegan Chickpea Salad Sandwich

We love a good sandwich or sub and have been experimenting with different types of sandwiches and now have a few favorite go to’s. One being my Vegan Chickpea Salad Sandwich or also known as Garbanzo Bean Salad, it reminds me of a “chicken” salad sandwich and have even been told it tastes like it as well.


I came up with this recipe because I had cooked a pound of dried garbanzo beans and had a lot left over so I dried some in the oven for a crunchy snack and was craving a sandwich. I just used what I had on hand in the fridge and it turned out perfect the first time. It was so good that I ate it for 3 days in a row.

I now cook dried garbanzo beans every week and always keep them on our Must Have Vegan Food List. We usually cook 1 pound in the crock pot and use half to put on our green salads and use the other half to make this Vegan Chickpea Salad Sandwich. We hope you love it as much as we do.

Recipe Notes

We like to put hydroponic lettuce on our sandwiches, spinach would be good too.
Walnuts and sliced grapes would be a nice change to add to the Chickpea salad.
