Chickpea Patty Pita Pocket Sandwiches - Vegan

Wow I'm so excited about this recipe. It's a great Spring and Summer meal and would be perfect for a picnic lunch at the park.

These chickpea patty pita pockets are so flavorful and healthy and of course plant based! I love making them for lunch or dinner. This recipe makes 12-15 patties so it leaves leftovers for days which saves a lot of time. It's really easy to put one of these together and throw it in your lunch box for work or school.

I highly recommend topping it with some dairy-free tatziki and a lime squeeze for the best experience!

I love putting it in a pita pocket. Trader Joe's has some great pita bread pockets (I love the whole grain ones) but you can also find them at your local grocery store, usually in the produce section where the specialty breads are. I keep mine in the refrigerator so they stay fresh longer.
