This vegan pinwheel recipe is a quick and easy appetizer or lunch, ready in under 10 minutes. Traditional pinwheel sandwiches are made with dairy, but I used a tasty mash of fresh avocado and chickpeas instead of a vegan cream cheese.

These pinwheels make a hearty and delicious appetizer or snack, and are loaded with plant-based simple ingredients! The avocado chickpea filling is packed with canned beans, veggies, for a rich and velvety texture. These vegetable pinwheels make the perfect appetizer, easy finger food. They also make a fantastic lunch box addition, as the small pieces are perfect for kid’s hands.

Ingredients for these Avocado Chickpea Pinwheels

  • Chickpeas / Garbanzo Beans:  these beans are a great pantry staple (I always keep dried and cooked on hand!) and offer some excellent plant protein.
  • Avocado
  • Mustard: Use prepared yellow mustard or whole ground, whatever strikes your fancy.
  • Relish: This is the secret ingredient for a little sweetness and acidity. Use any version you want, sweetened or unsweetened.
  • Wraps – you can use any veggie wrap or flour tortillas you can find in grocery stores. I used a large flour wrap, a spinach tortilla wrap, and one with sun-dried tomatoes. You can even use gluten-free tortillas if needed.
  • Veggies: The best part – fresh avocados, red bell peppers, spinach, cucumbers, sliced cherry tomatoes, green onions, red bell pepper, or any of your favorite veggies can be added inside.

Filling Options & Variations

To make Mexican pinwheels, you can add some cooked black beans, refried beans, and vegan cheese or sour cream.

For a spicier pinwheel, add chopped red onion or sliced jalapeno peppers/

Make Mediterranean pinwheels with creamy hummus, artichoke hearts, and black olives.

How To Make Pinwheels Vegan

  2. Lay our your wraps or tortillas. Add an thin layer of chickpea spread to the top. Add fresh veggies (not too many!) and roll up the tortilla. Repeat with the remainder of the spread, tortillas, and vegetables.
  3. You can either slice the rolled tortilla and and serve immediately – or cover the rolled up pinwheels in plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 4 hours before slicing and serving.
