Salad Cress Avocado and Chickpea Open Sandwich


If you’ve followed my recipes for a while now, you’d know I love sandwiches. Sometimes, I crave a healthy lunch and this Salad Cress Avocado and Chickpea Open Sandwich just cannot be beaten! This recipe is slightly different to my usual sandwiches as it’s open, so there is less bread but it is still very filling.

To make this sandwich, I start by toasting 2 slices of rustic brown bread under the grill and top each slice with freshly cut salad cress. I mash a large avocado with lemon zest and juice and divide it between the two slices of toast. I top each sandwich with chickpeas and the remaining cress and serve.

Without meat is the way to go with this one, I'm not vegan but I tried with and without and the meat ruins the flavor so recommending ya'll to keep it off this crunchy masterpiece.

Leona Eghbali

Perfect for lunch I brought some to work and it was very filling and tasty.

Yazmin Masinter

It actually is kinda zesty cause the lemon but I think that gives it a bit of a kick which is what's needed for this snack.

Journi Mahlke

Not a huge fan of the dull taste I think it's due to the avocado or something but it really does taste husband enjoyed it though.

Amiah Zayat

Normally I despise eating avocado but it really does make this cress sandwich even more yummy.

Brown bread taste kinda funky with this, any recommendations on other types of bread that would go better?

Didn't expect it to be so freaking tasty this is great.

Amaia Pottratz

Can't be unhappy with a meal on this website, I tried teh potatoes with cream cheese first and then this second..loved both.

Mariella Eckrote

So I went with a bit more spices such as red chili flakes and garlic salt..both added to this so well.

Zahara Dumpson

Never going to say never to vegan snacks again this sandwich was the BOMB!!!
