  • 2 slices bread wholegrain
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons hummus
  • 1 tomato sliced
  • 2 sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 cup arugula and/or microgreens
  • 1/2 red onion thinly sliced
  • salt
  • black pepper

Chickpea Salad Sandwich

  • 1 can chickpeas (15-ounce or 1 1/2 cups of cooked chickpeas - rinsed and drained)
  • 1/4 cup red onion
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • 1 rib celery
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • salt (to taste)
  • pepper (to taste)
  • 4 slices bread
  • lettuce
  • microgreens
  • julienne carrots
  • cucumber


Avocado Sandwich

  • Pit and peel half of the avocado, slice it and cover it with lemon juice.
  • Top the bread with the hummus, place the avocado sliced on top and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Then add a layer of sliced tomatoes, the sun-dried tomatoes cut into small pieces, red onion, and greens. Then finish it off by topping with the remaining bread slice.

Chickpea Salad Sandwich

  • Add all the chickpea salad ingredients in a bowl and mash with a masher or a fork until you reach a creamy consistency (alternatively, place all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until combined, making sure not to puree the filling too much). Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
  • Assemble the chickpea salad sandwich: spread the chickpea salad on the bottom slice, top it with the veggies, season with a bit of salt and pepper, press with the other slice of bread, and enjoy!
