Chickpea Salad Sandwich


                                                           Chickpea Salad Sandwich

Don't ask me how this works but, somehow smashed up chickpeas dressed as tuna salad is amazing! You don't really need a recipe for this because you can add whatever you usually add to your tuna salad. I made mine with some low-fat vegan mayo, brown mustard, relish, celery and cucumber. I drain then pulse a can of chickpeas together with the other veggies and then add the wet ingredients. Add lettuce, tomato, onion (whatever you prefer) and make it a sandwich. It works well stuffed in a bell pepper, a hollowed out cucumber or a lettuce wrap. It is so easy and the kids love it. Gluten-free, vegan, soy-free, nut-free.

 2 slices whole wheat bread or hollowed veggie
 1 can  drained chickpeas
 1 tsp brown or yellow mustard
 1/3 cup (or less)  vegan mayonnaise
 2 tbs pickle relish
 1 rib chopped celery- optional (cucumber, green,onion or mix of all)
    lettuce, optional- i like the spring greens mix
    tomato slices, optional
    fresh ground pepper
