Hello new take-to-work lunch idea 👋

It’s so good to have lunch options like this one in your back pocket. Not only are these sandwiches hardy enough to last a few days in the fridge but they’re also super versatile and are topped with a sauce to die for.

I’ve mentioned a few times that I’ve kind of been lukewarm towards avocado for the past few years. I spent my teenage years enjoying it but one day I just went off it completely. Recently I’ve been gradually reintroducing it into my diet and it turns out that sauces like this one with a hint of spice and plenty of other herby flavours going on are the perfect vehicle.

For these vegetable sandwiches I used homemade pitta breads which Will has just perfected and they tasted so good but you could go for pretty much any outer you like to transport this delicious filling to your mouth.

In terms of contents these are most similar to these veggie wraps but with added chickpeas and aubergine.

Why we love these roasted vegetable sandwiches…

First off they’re completely vegan which makes them perfect for when we’re avoiding meat during the week.

They’re also super healthy and full of good stuff like protein from the chickpeas and healthy fats from the avocado.

These sandwiches are also incredible versatile and you can use the same basic recipe to make all kinds of different version from changing the vegetables you choose to switching the pitta for sourdough or a wrap.

They’re also great for meal prep as they last for a few days in the fridge so you can prep them at the weekend ready to take to work during the week.

You can also easily make them gluten free just by switching the bread for your favourite gluten free option or leaving it out altogether and serving everything over a salad.

Veggie Pitta Ingredients

Chickpeas: Tinned is fine, simply drain and rinse before using

Veggies: I went for cauliflower and aubergine for these sandwiches but you could use whatever you have on hand

Spices: I tossed the veg and chickpeas in a mixture of chilli powder and curry powder before roasting to add a bit of heat

Pitta: Or another bread of your choice

Avocado Sauce: This is made from a blend of avocados, garlic, olive oil, coriander, chilli and lime juice
