Scale

Ingredients

Sandwich

  • Everything bagel or bread of choice (I used O’Doughs)
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 1 tomato
  • Spinach

Garlic Tahini Cumin Yogurt

  • 2/3 cup vegan yogurt (greek style) (I used Rippl vanilla unsweetened)
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp cumin (adjust according to taste preference)
    water to thin (if desired)

Instructions

  1. Make your garlic tahini cumin yogurt sauce by blending or whisking all ingredients
    together.
  2. Drain and rinse your chickpeas and place into your food processor/blender and pulse until
    they are all broken into very small pieces- almost blended, but be careful not to blend
    them into hummus! Then place them into a medium bowl.
  3.  Combine the chickpeas with 1/4 – 1/2 cup of your yogurt sauce (depending on how
    creamy you like your salad)
  4. Cut your avocado, spoon it into a bowl and smash it with a fork.
  5.  Assemble your sandwich with smashed avocado, chickpea salad, spinach, and tomato.

Notes
