Chickpea Salad prepared in a bowl

This simple chickpea salad sandwich is a creamy and filling vegetarian lunch idea that I whip up all the time! Call it a chickpea tuna salad but totally but not tuna, made with a few flavorful but simple ingredients! This makes for a great easy weekend lunch, but also makes a great meal prep for lunches for during the week!

 The key health bomb here is CHICKPEAS! You may already have guessed this, but chickpeas are a pretty crucial component of this sandwich when it comes to making it a super healthy sandwich. These legumes are high in protein, full of nutrients, and are a great source of fiber. Chickpeas are also known as garbanzo beans, so you may see them labelled that way at the grocery store, but they’re the same thing, I can tell you after much research!
