A vegan sandwich made from mashed chickpeas that tastes similar to a tuna salad sandwich.
Drain and rinse a can of chickpeas, then pour them into a bowl.
Mash them with the back of a fork or a potato masher until almost all of them are crushed.
Serve between 2 pieces of bread, rolled in a wrap, or on lettuce leaves.
On Toast - my favorite way to eat this is on toast. It's surprisingly similar to tuna on toast.
Grilled - You can butter the outsides of your bread and grill the sandwich to golden perfection in a frying pan. It's especially delicious with some vegan mozzarella cheese.
Buffalo Chickpea Salad Sandwich - replace the mayo with vegan buffalo sauce and omit the pickles. Add additional hot sauce to make it extra spicy! It's delicious with some vegan ranch dressing drizzled over top too!
Lettuce Wraps - if you are keeping it low carb or you're gluten-free, serving it on large Romaine lettuce leaves is fresh and delicious!
Veggie Packed - you can add any finely chopped vegetables or herbs that you would like to this salad. Chopped dill, parsley, or green onions are tasty. You can also add finely diced carrots, bell peppers, or even grapes or craisins. Go crazy and make it your own!
Curried - make flavorful curry chickpea salad by adding 2-3 tsp of yellow curry powder to your mixture and swapping out the pickles for raisins, and the pickle juice for lemon juice. These simple substitutions transform this sandwich into a flavorful alternative that will never leave you bored!
