Chickpea Salad Sandwich

Updated: Apr 18, 2018


Chickpea Salad Sandwich

Yield: 2-3 sandwiches

Prep: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes


Ingredients:

1-15 oz. can chickpeas (drained)

2 tbsp. vegan mayo

1 1/2 tbsp. dijon mustard

1/4 cup diced pickles

3 tbsp. hulled sunflower seeds

squeeze of fresh lemon juice (about 1 tsp.)

salt & pepper to taste


Fixings: sliced bread, tomatoes, red onion and lettuce

Directions:

  1. In medium sized bowl mash your chickpeas well. Make sure you drain the chickpeas before mashing them. You do not want watery chickpea salad!

  2. Add mayo & mustard and stir.

  3. Fold in pickles and sunflower seeds.

  4. Season with salt, pepper and lemon juice to taste. Stir until incorporates.

  5. Top your bread slice with a heaping scoop of chickpea salad, top with tomatoes, red onion and lettuce. You can add avocado too for an extra special treat!

  6. Enjoy!


Note: I remember hating tuna salad growing up. I was never much of a fish person even when I wasn't vegan. I would put pounds of mustard in my tuna salad just to make it bearable. No need, just eat chickpea salad sandwiches! Quick, easy and no fishy taste. I prefer pickles in mine as I am not really a relish girl. However, if you want to relish it up I would recommend about 2-3 tbsp. of relish in this recipe.
