This delicious chickpea vegan sandwich might remind foodies of the popular turkey salad and cranberry sandwich but instead using chickpeas as the main source of protein. The sandwich is filled with delicious, wholesome and fresh ingredients including avocado, cranberries and spinach to fill you.

Just because a meal is vegan doesn't mean it'll skimp out on flavor or protein as shown with this vegetarian smashed avocado chickpea salad sandwich by Ambitious Kitchen. The sandwich recipe cleverly uses avocado in the place of mayo to act as the binder for the salad. The salad is made from crushed chickpeas, lemon juice, dried cranberries and spices layered thickly on a slab of toast with red onions, spinach and arugula. In total the dish contains roughly 8.7-grams of protein per serving.
