9. Chickpea Salad Sandwich


This chickpea salad sandwich recipe is my vegan spin on a pan bagnat! Crunchy veggies, herbs, and olives fill it with bright and briny flavor.

Jack has kindly titled this chickpea salad sandwich a Pan Bag-Not. If you ask me, it has everything that makes a classic pan bagnat so craveable: crisp veggies, briny flavors, and soft baguette. However, it doesn’t include the traditional tuna or hard-boiled eggs. It may be completely unconventional, but it’s completely delicious (and completely vegan, too!).

This kidney bean salad has been my go-to lunch for the past several weeks. I just love the all of the fresh simple ingredients together. As the salad sits, the cucumbers release some of their juice which then become part of the dressing flavors. It’s delicious eaten immediately, but leftovers are even better!

3. Hummus Recipe with Tahini


This hummus recipe will help you make a luxurious dip that’s just asking to be scooped up by a chip or crispy pita wedge. The difference between a sad-looking hummus and an extra creamy, inviting one is just 20 minutes. With a few ingredients and attention to detail, you can make an instant crowd-pleaser, all in the comfort of your own kitchen.

What Is Hummus? If you’ve ever seen a luscious dip with a swirled top and an ivory hue, chances are it’s hummus. Made of garbanzo beans/chickpeas, it has a flavor profile that is far more complex than it looks.

2. Vegan Spanakopita Triangles


I bet that when you think of Greek food, spanakopita is one the first dishes that springs to mind. Greeks make all sorts of delicious pies, but spanakopita is world famous for a reason – it has flaky and crispy golden pastry with a spinach and feta cheese filling seasoned with nutmeg and herbs. When made with love and care, it is the stuff of dreams.

On Paros, there is one pie shop in particular, run by a charming Giorgios that has become something of a local institution. Its appearance may be unassuming but the pies are out of this world – made with homemade pastry with well balanced filling and always fresh.
