I make this chickpea, avocado, and fresh dill sandwich on my homemade 5-ingredient vegan bread, which I lightly toast and spread with homemade vegan tahini. The ingredients are garden-fresh, or I shop at one of my area’s many indoor farmers’ markets in the winter months. I didn’t grow up eating chickpeas – my mother didn’t cook with them – but later in my adult life, I discovered chickpeas, and now they are a kitchen staple.

Chickpeas are a staple in my kitchen, and I always have several cans in the cupboards. They contain high protein levels and many other nutrients, including potassium, B vitamins, and iron. They are versatile and, upon roasting, can be crisp and crunchy.

Hello, I'm Denise.

I love to eat, garden, travel, and do yin yoga! I make plant-based recipes and photograph them from my 1920’s, remodeled apartment in Rhode Island. I've always loved fresh basil. Put some fresh basil leaves on a piece of cardboard, drizzle on a little olive oil and sea salt, and I'd be tempted to eat it! ❤️

Chickpea Salad Sandwich with Avocado and Fresh Dill Ingredients

This delicious sandwich with homemade vegan bread is bright and delicious.

    • 5 Ingredient Vegan Loaf Bread A great sandwich starts with great bread, and I used my homemade five-ingredient vegan loaf bread recipe. Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, perfect for any sandwich.
    • Lemon Garlic Tahini My tahini sauce recipe is mildly nutty, creamy, and savory.
    • Easy Chickpea Salad The base of your sandwich is roasted chickpeas; my chickpea salad recipe is light and flavorful. I use my roasted chickpea recipe for this.
    • Avocado – Adds a buttery, creamy, slightly nutty flavor with earthy, grassy undertones.
    • Arugula – Peppery, bright arugula is the perfect green for this sandwich.
    • Fresh dill – Deliciously fresh, fresh dill has a citrus-like taste with a slightly grassy undertone.
    • Olive Oil – For drizzling on your sandwich once you have it constructed!
    • Sea salt – Helps all your flavors pop!

How to Assemble Your Chickpea Salad Sandwich with Avocado and Fresh Dill

Stack it high! This delicious sandwich with homemade vegan bread goes together in about 10 minutes.

    • First, lay out your ingredients on a large flat surface. You’ll need room to stack your sandwich with fresh, delicious ingredients.
    • Then start to assemble, and don’t be afraid to stack it high! I begin with the arugula and place it as the first layer of your sandwich. Don’t skimp here – every healthy sandwich needs a lot of greens!
    • Scoop on your chickpea salad. You will have made this ahead so that it will chill. Some chickpeas and veggies might spill over, but don’t worry about that! Keep on stacking!
    • Next come the perfectly ripened avocado slices and a small scoop of chickpea salad.
    • Then comes the feathery fresh dill and an additional layer of arugula.
    • Finally, spread on a healthy amount of tahini sauce and slice!

Now it’s time to dig in! This chickpea salad sandwich is a perfect lunch, and I often serve it with homemade french fries. It’s ideal for a picnic, where I wrap each sandwich in parchment paper and tie it up with light twine.

Serving Suggestions for Your Chickpea Salad Sandwich

This chickpea salad sandwich is best served right after you make it. The avocadoes will brown once they’ve been cut. To get a jump on things, make the chickpea salad ahead of time and chill. At the last minute, slice the avocadoes and assemble everything right before to eat or just a few hours ahead of time if you’re packing it for lunch or a picnic.

You can enjoy this chickpea salad on its own. But it also pairs well with a salad for a heartier meal. It would be great with any of these recipes.
