A fresh, hearty, healthy vegan lunch option that's guaranteed to please meat-eaters and vegetarians alike! It's a rich and creamy sandwich filling that you can feel good about eating!


  • 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 large ripe avocado
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onion
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • Sandwich bread (use your favorite)
  • Salad greens (I like baby arugula, but other greens or sprouts would work, too)


  1. Place chickpeas and avocado in a medium bowl and smash them together using a fork or potato masher
  2. Add cilantro, green onion, lime juice, salt, and pepper and stir to combine. Taste for seasoning and adjust if necessary. 
  3. Spread about 1/4 of the salad on bread and top with salad greens.
