Chickpea Salad Sandwich


Ok – you caught me. I didn’t actually make a sandwich out of this. Between the whole gluten-free thing and not having a whole lot of bread in the house, I make a lot of salads. But I urge you to try making a nice, crusty-bread sammy out of this.

Inspired from Hello Veggy’s Curried Chickpea Mango Salad

Chickpea Salad (or Sammich) makes 3 good-sized salads or 4 small salads

1.5 cups of chickpeas

3 tbsp of vegan mayonnaise (I used Just Mayo)

1 tbsp nutritional yeast

1 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp paprika

1/4 tsp of black salt (use white if you don’t have black but the black will give it that “egg-y” flavour)

2 stalks of celery, diced

1/2 a bell pepper (I used a quarter of yellow and a quarter of a red), diced

1/4 cup of peas

Place the chickpeas in a medium-sized bowl, add the remaining dressing ingredients (mayo through salt) and mash it up with a potato masher.

Add in the celery, pepper & peas and stir until combined.

Enjoy with some crispy bread, or like me, some crispy greens =)

  1. Kimmy, this looks easy and yummy; thanks for posting! I can’t have chickpeas (gah, so many food sensitivities!), but I’m going to try it with white beans. Although, like you, I don’t have bread in the house either, so crispy greens it is!
