Fully plant-based chickpea salad sandwich that is packed with veggies and protein.

Who grew up eating tuna and egg salad sandwiches?

No doubt they are yum but not always the healthiest. I wanted to put a new spin on these classic sandwiches, a vegetarian spin that is.

I always have chickpeas on hand as they are a great plant-based source of protein.

Chickpeas are packed with nutrients and helps to support blood sugar levels and also benefits digestion.

For added nutrients, I recommend using a sprouted grain bread.

You can use canned chickpeas or if you have dry chickpeas on hand, be sure to soak them in water for at least 8 hours then drain and cook them in water for 30-45 minute or until they are softened.

I am also using vegan mayo here so it is a vegan friendly recipe.

Make a big batch and have your lunch sorted for the next coming days!



Mash Your Chickpeas

Drain and rinse your canned chickpeas then add them to a large bowl and mash them using a potato masher, cocktail muddler or a fork!

Mash until you can no longer see any whole pieces.


Make the Chickpea Salad Mix

To your mashed chickpeas, add the chopped red onion, celery and apple. Stir to combine.

Next, add the juice of 1 lemon then stir again.

Lastly, add the mayo, salt and pepper ad stir to combine. Give the mix a taste and adjust seasoning, if needed.


Assemble Your Sandwich

Lightly toast a couple slices of your favorite bread then add a few spinach leaves to your bottom slice, top with some of the chickpea salad mix then top with another slice of bread.
