With toddler eating patterns taking full force in our house, I like hand-held items more often than not. This fritter sandwich was slightly born out of a combination that was requested by the two year-old: chickpea fritters and hummus. My child loves hummus and would dip anything in it- case in point, it was watermelon yesterday. But I love the idea of using two components, ones I would normally make ahead of time in a lunch, that are easy to throw together. Really any combination of fritters/vegetable cakes with hummus/any kind of spread would work.
Chickpea Fritter Sandwiches with Hummus
Hearty sandwiches featuring easy-to-make chickpea fritters and homemade hummus. Perfect for a weekend lunch or lunch using leftovers.
- Make chickpea fritters and hummus according to directions. Save out 4 chickpea patties and ¼ cup hummus to use on these sandwiches.
- Assemble the sandwiches with 1 tablespoon hummus, a handful of spinach, two chickpea fritters, more hummus, and a sprinkle of feta.
Chickpea Fritter Sandwich
A couple of my favorite combinations outside the chickpea fritter/hummus combination includes cauliflower cakes with white bean dip and sweet corn fritters with harissa (or even harissa hummus.)
Fritters: Any leftover fritter will work in this wrap. I like to make a batch of vegetable cakes on the weekend and use throughout the week for sandwiches, salads, and grain bowls. A couple of my favorites include these corn fritters and these cauliflower cakes.
Spreads: Beyond hummus, I’ll use any leftover spread or dip on my sandwiches. A couple favorites include harissa, carrot dip, or white bean dips.
Greens: swap the spinach for lettuce or kale- I usually use whatever I happen to have on hand.
For lack of planning, lunch seems to be the hardest meal to nail. Leftovers and components have become our best friend in the lunch recipes which makes these Flatout sandwiches easy to throw together. A few other ideas, besides this fritter sandwich, that would work well with the fold-its include:
