This post is not only a recipe but an ode to chickpeas. So filling and versatile. It is easy to buy a few cans and keep them in your pantry – we usually have something with chickpeas on a weekly basis. When we want to make quickie sandwiches this is what we do! No cooking required.
This salad is sometimes called Vegan Tuna – similar ingredients go into it. When you are looking for something filling and easy you probably already have all the ingredients.
For chickepea mash filling
1 can of chickpeas
1 tablespoon of mayo or vegan mayo
1 tablespoon of dijon mustard
pinch of pepper
pinch of old bay seasoning ( if you do not have salt is fine)
1/4 of a red or green pepper
1/4 small red onion
1/4 cup shredded carrots
2 leaves of lettuce
1 table spoon of hummus
2 slices of whole wheat bread
1) Open the can of chickpeas and remove liquid. Do a quick rinse and pat dry.
2) Mash up the chickpeas and stir in ingredients .Let sit for 1 hour
3) Take sandwich ingredients and layer on as desired. I prefer to toast my bread.
