I just made these delicious Vegan Chickpea Mediterranean Pockets for today’s lunch. In addition to chickpeas, my ingredients included tomatoes, cucumber, vegan feta cheese, and red onions. I spread some tasty homemade hummus inside of a tasty pita bread, added some romaine lettuce, and then enjoyed an awesome lunch. Go to my Instagram page or to my Facebook page to see a video on how I prepared it. Do you have a favorite pocket sandwich?
