I have been on a serious sandwich and salad kick lately and these Mediterranean Chickpea Salad Sandwiches are easily moving to the top of my list! The chickpea salad has all of your favorite mediterranean flavors and can be made in the food processor in just a couple minutes. The pesto and greens add some brightness. And don’t get me started on these everything sandwich rolls – out of this world. A quick and easy lunch or dinner!

Step One: Toast the Bread

Ok, these everything but the bagel rolls from Trader Joe’s are my absolute favorite! They pack so much flavor in a cute little package. If you don’t have a Trader Joe’s near you, try checking your local store. Other brands have picked up on the popularity of everything-flavored things and I have seen them in my local stores as well. You could also use everything bagels!

I think we all know how to toast bread. So pop the rolls in the toaster, air fryer or oven and cook until toasty.

Step Two: Make the Chickpea Salad

Chickpea salad has been one of my favorites for years – you can find my other favorite variation here. This might be my new favorite way to make it! Here is what you need:

  • chickpeas
  • vegan mayo
  • vegan feta 
  • garlic 
  • sun-dried tomatoes
  • fresh basil
  • dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper

Add everything to a food processor and just give it a few pulses. You could also smash everything by hand, but the food processor is way faster. Give it a taste and adjust any of the seasonings you need to.

At this point, you can place the chickpea salad in the fridge to chill, or you can assemble.

Step Three: Assemble

To the top of each roll, spread on some pesto – I used store-bought, but you can find my favorite homemade pesto recipe here. To the bottom of each roll, layer chickpea salad, more vegan feta and microgreens. Close up the sandwiches, slice in half and dig in.

These sandwiches are filling, but not too heavy. They have all of my favorite bright flavors. They are a must make!
