I came across a recipe for a chickpea sandwich spread when I first became a vegetarian. I have tinkered with the recipe and it is now one of my favourite lunches. It makes enough to do 3 sandwiches.
Chickpea Salad Sandwiches
1 19oz can of chickpeas, drained & rinsed
1 stalk of celery, diced
1/4 c onion, diced
3 tbsp mayonnaise (or your favourite vegan mayo substitute)
1 tbsp mustard
1 tbsp dill pickle, chopped (I didn't have any, so I used relish)
salt & pepper to taste
Put chickpeas into a large mixing bow. Mash them with a potato masher until they are fairly smooth. Some people like chunky salad in their sandwiches, but I much prefer a smoother texture.
Add in all of the other ingredients and mix well.
....yet another bowl of yumminess that I could eat with a spoon......
This chickpea salad is delicious served on your favourite toasted whole grain bread or with whole wheat crackers.
This sandwich meets all of my lunchtime criteria: healthy, delicious, filling and satisfying - oh yeah!!
I think this is one of my favourite sandwiches since giving up meat. My other fave would have to be a Subway Veggie Delite - with lots of green olives and honey mustard!! What's your favourite sandwich? How do you keep your lunches interesting and delectable?? I'm always looking for new ideas.
