Green Goddess Sandwich with Chickpea Spread

Green Goddess Sandwich layered with a creamy chickpea spread, avocado & cucumber slices, egg and baby spinach on a multiseed bread. So nutritious, yet filling! Perfect for your work lunch bag!



There are busy days with no time left for cooking. In an effort to make a quick, nutritious and filling meal without cooking, I came up with this awesome sandwich. In my opinion a good sandwich needs a good bread, a good spread, protein and a lot of veggies.


How to make Chickpea Spread

For this Chickpea Spread you will need cooked chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice and some salt & pepper. Add 3/4 of the chickpeas on a food processor together with the rest of the ingredients and pulse, until almost smooth. Then smash with a fork the rest of the chickpeas and add them to the creamy mixture and stir, until combined. (This is my favorite way to prepare this spread).

If you prefer a more creamy texture you can just add all of the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until completely smooth.

If you double, triple etc. the ingredients of the spread, you can prepare it and store it in the refrigerator, so you can use it in any quick meal or you can enjoy it with just a slice or two of a good bread.



Prepare this easy and healthy Green Goddess Sandwich for work or school. It is so delicious and will keep you feel full for hours.
