This Curry Chickpea Salad Sandwich recipe is a healthier version of everyone’s favorite sandwich. This gluten free and vegan recipe can be made in 10 minutes flat!
You know everyone’s favorite Chicken Salad Sandwich? Well, today we are making that same crowd pleasing sandwich even healthier with a few simple swaps.
It is every bit as full of flavor, creamy, and delicious as the original version. Scratch that. It is even more delicious.
It is a creamy, curry flavor-bomb sandwiched between two pieces of bread. There are nutty pecans, crisp and sweet apples, and crunchy celery bits tucked into this flavorful sandwich recipe.
The healthy swap is pretty simple, just take out the chicken, and add in some chickpeas. Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, have more fiber and nutrients than chicken. They are also more budget friendly and can be kept in the pantry, so you can make this Curry Chickpea Salad Sandwich any time the craving strikes!
Which, trust us, will be often.
Chickpeas also help us maintain a healthy weight for multiple reasons. They are so full of fiber that they are incredibly satiating, which can help us make it to the next meal without reaching for a snack. They can also help regulate blood sugar and are great for digestive health.
Though chickpeas are a low-calorie food, our bodies can’t absorb or use all of the calories in beans, making them even healthier than expected. And for each calorie of beans you consume, you are getting plenty of vitamins and minerals.
