Quick High Protein Vegan meal : Chickpeas and Seitan Sandwich
I love making meals in a jiffy and definitely they should be healthy, tasty and filling. Well this sandwich ticks all the three boxes…. It’s hearty, healthy and tasty.
Though I prefer having it as a sandwich, it also tastes amazing in a wrap, or just as a salad. If on a Gluten free diet you can skip on the Seitan and substitute with tempeh, beans or more chickpeas.
The best part I loved about this sandwich is that it’s ready in exactly ten minutes. It’s perfect for the time you are really tired and just don’t want to spend that extra time in the kitchen….
Well not to forget the healthy aspect of this tasty sandwich…. Seitan, chickpeas and almonds give this sandwich a super boost in the protein content making it a perfect high protein wholesome meal….
