Change up Your Lunch Break With This Vegan Chickpea Salad Wrap

In the sandwich department, vegans seem to have a shortage of options. Bologna sandwich? Nope. Turkey sandwich? Nope. Egg salad sandwich? Still nope. I love me some peanut butter and jelly as much as the next person, but that can get boring after a while.

And for those who are allergic to peanuts, the options shrink even more! Or so it would seem. Chickpeas to the rescue! These legumes certainly have a plethora of recipe options. Their juice can be used as an egg replacement in a cake recipe. And now, I’m here to say that the beans themselves can be used as an egg replacement in an egg salad sandwich recipe! Woohoo!!

Wanna have a picnic in the park? Here’s a great sandwich to bring! With one can of chickpeas, I had enough to make three large wraps. Not only is it an inexpensive lunch to make, but it’s packed with protein and iron!

All I did was drain the can of chickpeas, pour into a bowl, and smoosh them with a fork (a potato masher might also work). I added the mayo, mustard, relish and mixed together. Then a little salt and pepper. Voilà! Just spread on your choice of bread and add your favourite complementing ingredients for a fantastic sandwich!

I love, love, love fried onions in a sandwich, so I had to add that to mine, along with lettuce, tomatoes, and, of course, a pickle slice! Yummy yummy in my tummy!

There are still enough days left of summer to enjoy a few vegan picnics in the park. Pack a lunch now and go! And, don’t forget, chickpea juice is a great egg substitute in baking. Don’t throw out the juice when draining and you can make a batch of cookies too (or how about some of my favorite vegan cupcakes)! I made sugar cookies with mine. Yum!
