Coming at you with a high protein vegetarian sandwich!

As someone who tries to eat 130 grams of protein per day, it can be hard to meet that goal with purely vegetarian foods. I came up with this chickpea salad sandwich that uses a skyr based dressing and a Mexican inspired spice blend to provide extra protein and flavor. Hope you enjoy!

Wowie, nice vegetarian option! I just pulled the chickpeas out to soak overnight, and have a couple of containers of Sigi's in the fridge. Thanks, Ethan!

Haley Phair says:

Just made this and substituted Skyr with avocado (single decker sandwich). SO GOOD. Can't wait to bring this to work tomorrow!

How long would this keep in the fridge?

How many sandwiches does this make? Because one can of chickpeas alone is well over 550 calories…

Depending on your tastes, high protein vegetarian tacos are amazing, as well as veggie pot pie. Change the ingredients to your needs, as not everyone eats carbs or dairy etc.

For the tacos: 2 cans black beans, a full onion, and a green or red bell pepper plus spices is all you need. Carmelize the onions w garlic and bell peppers until they’re brown and delicious, then add black beans, cayenne, paprika, cumin, a bit of oregano, salt, and heavy pepper, plus a bit of water. Reduce the mixture until delicious. Serve with spinach in a whole wheat tortilla (iron-fortified foods are really important for vegetarians) and pico del galllo, avocado for healthy fats, and cheese if you want to spoil yourself and make it non-vegan. This is one of my favorite recipes to suggest to others (can’t eat it myself anymore, as I got allergy tested and am allergic to all types of chili pepper and tomato), and super high in protein.

Another option is a lentil mushroom pot pie. Sweat off onions, one or two 8 oz packages of mushrooms, garlic, celery, and carrot in a pan until fragrant (I wait until they’re carmelized), then add veggie stock, 2-3 diced potatoes, half a huge bag of lentils, a huge bag of frozen veggies with green beans, peas, carrots, and corn, plus dried rosemary and thyme. Cook until the lentils and potatoes are tender, place in a pie pan with vegetarian pie crust in it, and cook until the crust is brown. So delicious, full of vegetables and protein (because of the whole carton of mushrooms and lentils), and very filling because of the potatoes.

I’ve been vegetarian for 3 years and I can’t stand these recipes that don’t fill you up. If you put effort into introducing a lot of protein in the form of beans, nuts, mushrooms, etc, plus healthy fats in avocado and stuff, it’s a lot more filling.

Got any suggestions for dairy-free skyr substitutes? Overall, this looks really good. I'll have to give it a try.

This is a great looking recipe. Thanks for sharing.
