This creamy chickpea egg salad is a fantastic plant-based filling lunch or dinner!  I absolutely love smashed chickpea salad, and wanted to give this recipe an update by using classic egg salad veggies (celery & red pepper) for a bright and fresh crunch. It gives this sandwich an extra pop of flavor.

I used to love egg salad sandwiches, so making a delicious vegan version with chickpeas is a great and healthy substitute. It’s high in protein, high in fiber, and loaded with a creamy dressing just like egg salad.

Make Egg Salad Vegan for a Healthy Version

This vegan egg salad with chickpeas is a simple way to get extra veggies in your diet. I’m all about making recipes plant-based when I can. Vegan cooking does NOT have to be bland, boring, or flavorless… It’s quite the opposite when done right. By building meals around vegan pantry staples and swapping in a few plant-based ingredients you can make healthier meals for you and your family. I made a list of my 125 favorite vegan pantry ingredients that we use on a weekly basis, and check out all my vegan recipes here that are on The Herbeevore. These easy and healthy recipes are fantastic meatless and dairy free meals for your table.

Meal Prep Garbanzo Bean Egg Salad For the Win!

This egg salad with garbanzo beans is the perfect recipe for healthy homemade meal prep.  I am a huge fan of meal prepping, batch cooking, and making recipes ahead.  I love the convenience of cooking once and being able to enjoy healthy homemade meals during the week when I don’t have time. There’s a whole section of TheHerbeevore.com dedicated to my favorite tried & true meal prep recipes.  With just a little planning and prep, you can have a week’s worth of recipes ready in the time it would take to make one portion.  Just batch cook, divide into individual containers, and place in the fridge or freezer for later!  I also made a list of my favorite meal prep products on Amazon that I use weekly. They make cooking easy.

This recipe makes enough chickpea salad for about 4 sandwiches – just add 2 generous scoops to a slice of your favorite bread, top with sprouts/tomato/lettuce, and lunch is ready. Or just eat on top of a salad, your choice!
