Vegan White Bean Salad Sandwich

White Bean Salad Sandwich

Hi friends! Hope you’re all well. Only good things for the most part over here. :)

You may have noticed from some of my “what I’ve been eating” round-ups that I have been on a sandwich kick this pregnancy. I mean, I always love a good sandwich but I can’t get enough lately. My new favorite for a boost of protein is this white bean salad sandwich. I know most people make chickpea salad (which is also awesome – I love this chipotle recipe) but I actually prefer the texture of white beans over chickpeas. They are a bit softer and easier to mash up. They are much creamier, too.

This recipe is a great plant-based substitute for your typical chicken or tuna salad sandwich. It also features my favorite – Just Mayo – so you know it’s legit. ;)


You will need:

  • 1 can white or cannellini beans, mashed up
  • 1 stalk celery, diced up small
  • 2-3 tbs Just Mayo
  • Small squirt of yellow mustard
  • Dash of nutritional yeast, salt, and pepper
  • Bread of your choice
  • Lettuce and tomato, optional

To make:

  • Drain and rinse beans, add to a bowl and mash with a fork. I mash it up quite a bit, but leave a few chunks for texture.
  • Dice up some celery into small bits and add to bowl of mashed beans along with mayo, mustard, nutritional yeast, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
  • Add to your favorite bread with lettuce and tomato (or whatever toppings you’d like)!

I love this recipe between two slices of bread, but it is also a great salad topper for some fiber and protein. Or you know, just eat it plain out of the bowl (guilty). I also love it in lettuce wraps!

Whether you are going vegetarian/vegan or are just looking to cut back on meat consumption, I highly recommend this type of recipe. It’s so creamy and delicious, I have a strong feeling you’ll really enjoy it.

I was this close to adding pickles to my sandwich too (still crazy over them). I mean honestly… it would probably be good?! Or maybe that is just pregnant me talking? Haha ;)

Have a great day, friends! xx bianca

  1. Hey pickles would probably be really yummy! I usually add pickle relish to my chickpea salads because my mom always put it in tuna- so I can attest to the taste!

  2. Made this for lunch today- so good! I too usually make chickpea salad- white beans were a good change and a good score- 49 cents on clearance! I added chopped dill pickles, so good! I also have added sliced almonds and red bell pepper in the past for crunch. 😊 Thanks for the yummy quick recipe!

    • Hey Sarah – I’m so glad you enjoyed it! I think I prefer the white beans to chickpeas. I definitely need to try adding pickle next. Sliced almonds are also intriguing. xx
