  1. Delicious, thank you! Easy to modify depending on dietary needs, and works great in wraps as well. I’ve been using many of your recipes over the years and love how the ingredients are easily accessible 🙂

  2. I truly enjoyed this. It felt nourishing. My take was avocado, EVOO, chick peas, salt, pepper, a few slices of shallot, and a good amount of smoked paprika, for the win.

    Thank you.

  3. I loved how simple this was to make and yet so yummy! I’ anxious to try with additions others have mentioned like domed paprika, cucumber, sprouts and other veggies. This is definitely going into my rotation as I make a real effort to reduce my cholesterol levels by diet modification instead of meds. Thank you for the beautiful, healthy high-fiber recipes!☺️

  4. Wow. Just wow. Such a healthy and delicious recipe that is good to the last bite! Highly recommend adding chilli flakes if you like some heat, and I also used chipotle olive oil instead of regular for extra spice. Made half the recipe into a wrap and still had a bit of the filling left over on the side! Just as good in the wrap as it is by itself. Thank you for this! Going to be a new regular on the lunch menu for sure.

  5. Made as shown with addition of chopped red pepper, daikon radish, carrot.. In a wrap lined with hummus was excellent!

  6. This was an awesome recipe as usual. I made a small sandwich and ate the rest with a spoon. I added broccoli sprouts to my sandwich. Very tasty recipe. Thank you for creating such a great blog with recipes that work.

  7. Loved this sandwich recipe! I’m always looking for easy things to make quickly to take to school for lunch. This one’s a winner! Passing it on to my teacher friends! Thanks for the great inspiration!

  8. I made two sandwiches from this recipe. 🤩 the lemon and olive oil make it taste so bright and fresh! That’s a welcome addition to winter cooking.

  9. Easy, good and healthy!! Getting healthier and feeling better recipe by wonderful recipe!
    Thank you!!

  10. Delicious. Since this recipe makes 2 servings, I halved the ingredients and served it openface on 1 slice of multigrain bread, sliced cucumbers, and a bed of baby spinach. Sprinkled with smoked paprika. This will be a regular lunch for me, thank you!

  11. Hi Sylvia
    If you suggest cutting the sandwich in half and share, do you mean that the portion is the half of the whole sandwich?

    1. Yes, the filling makes one giant sandwich- so I usually just eat half. You could also make 2 smaller sandwiches if you prefer – or two open-faced sandwiches.

  12. I’m just getting my recipes together to go shopping and I must tell you how BEAUTIFUL the photography is on your recipes!

  13. I made this sandwich without the chick peas and just mashed 1/2 of an avocado, added some chopped red onion and celery. Sprinkled it with about 1/4 of juice of a lemon, salt and pepper. Spread it on Dave’s Seed Bread, added a few slices of cucumber, and used avocado mayo. Yum! Thanks for the inspiration. So quick, easy and delicious!

  14. Just made with ingredients I had. It was delicious. I put in a Millet and flax wrap. One thing to note chickpeas + bread or wrap is double carbs. Chickpeas are an excellent source of protein but starchy. Keep in mind with portion of chickpeas if you are adding to grains (rice, bread, wrap), sweet potato. Good to have an idea for balanced eating.

  15. So good! I ended up using half a can of chickpeas (so a bit more than half a cup) and chipotle chili pepper in place of the cayenne. I spread it on whole grain naan and topped with spinach and tomato slices. I could eat this every day!

  16. This was absolutely scrummy! Easy to make and great combination of flavors. Love the scallions and lemon. Used mictogreens.

  17. I made this and not only was it easy, it was delicious! Highly recommend it!

  18. This looks incredibly robust and tasty! I do not say that about many vegetarian sammies! And I am loving that crazy old cutting board(?)

  19. I dont even remeber how I enter your site, but I want you to know how much I love your pics. They inspire me to eat healthy! And I love it.
    Thanks 🙂

  20. Thank you Silvia! The avocado sandwich is so simple, healthy and delicious! One more recipe to share with friends.
