Chickpea Sandwich

Who would have thought chickpeas and veggies would make such a tasty sandwich?  This sandwich whips up in a flash, is full of flavor, and is one of our family’s faves.

When our family transitioned to living a whole food plant-based lifestyle,  it was a relief to know that having tasty and filling sandwiches did not have to go out of the window.  This recipe inspired and adapted from the 22-Day Revolution definitely saved the day!  Eating Plants never tasted so good!
