Ingredients

Smashed chickpea salad

  • 14oz can of chickpeas, drained
  • 3 tbsp hummus (can sub mayo or vegan mayo)
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

Other ingredients


Instructions

  1. Smash the chickpeas using a potato masher, fork, or a food processor, then add the remaining chickpea salad ingredients to the bowl and mix together. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.
  2. Lightly toast the bread then assemble the sandwich with some lettuce, cucumber, chickpea salad and any other sandwich ingredients you love.

Notes

Mash to your desired texture. You can leave the chickpeas salad very chunky, or very mashed (almost like a pate texture)

Depending on the brand of chickpeas you use, you may need more or less salt and seasoning. Some brands of canned chickpeas have more salt added to them than others.

Lightly toast the bread. This gives the sandwich a nice flavour and texture.
