The Best Vegan Bagel Salad

I love packing this bagel salad with me whenever I doubt anything short of it will fill me up. It has a special place for occasions such as hikes, camping trips and beach visits. It also is a very popular item in my husband’s lunch box and for good reason. It is one of those things when you know what you are eating is nutritious but you still can’t help feeling a little guilt. It’s that good.

If you are taking this to work though, you may want to skip the onions, and add a little onion powder.

    1. I never got to keep it in the fridge for long, as it seems to disappear very quickly. But there is nothing in it that goes bad particularly fast. It should be OK for a couple of days.

  1. This looks amazing! I’ll definitely be trying this out this week 🙂 maybe I’ll add some dried cranberries too 🙂

  2. Salads made with chickpeas are my fave! I bet this would be delicious smushed between a fresh bagel and piled high with greens. Sounds like a good lunch idea:) Thanks for sharing!

  3. This looks amazing!!! Can’t wait to try it myself. I see the spinach layered beneath this sandwich filling…but what is that inside the sandwich filling? It looks like basil or parsley that has been chopped.

    1. Congratulations and welcome to the wonderful vegan world. I definitely agree, this as a baked potato filling sounds really really good.
