Chickpea Salad Sandwich

What you need: 

1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas, drained well
4-5 tablespoons vegan mayonnaise or tahini dressing
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
salt, to taste
1 stalk celery, diced finely
fresh dill, to taste
pinch garlic powder
whole grain bread, as needed

What you do: 

1. Begin by mashing the chickpeas in a medium mixing bowl, using a fork or potato masher. I like to leave a few chickpeas whole or just partially mashed for variation of texture.
2. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. This will make enough for about four big sandwiches, and keeps in the fridge for 4-5 days.

Preparation Time: 
10 min

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I sent these sandwiches along with my husband and his father to a baseball game.  They loved them!  My father-in-law thought they were chicken salad.  He might not make fun of my eating habits now.  My husband asked me to make another batch the next day.  He's normally a tuna fish guy.  Thanks for helping me prove vegan food is tasty! :)

;)bI loved this sandwich! I tried the recipe today for the first time along with some yummy blue corn tortilla chips and it was delish! I did add one chopped green onion (just a preference) but everything else was the same. It was super quick and simple and geat for an easy and practical lunch besides PB&J.

p.s In a way it reminded me of chicken salad when I used to eat meat. Haha, I thought this was wayyyyy better though :D

This was so easy and delicious.  I went with the vegenaise. I also added chipotle powder to give it a little kick.

OHHHH MY GOOOODD!  These sandwiches were AMAZING.  I honestly doubted that, a) it would be as quick as the recipe claimed it would, and b) it would taste like anything close to tuna salad or anything like that.  I was WRONG.  I mean, okay, I've been vegan too long really to know what it "tastes like", besides the fact that it tastes like AWESOME.  I used parsley instead of dill, and didn't use garlic / celery / tahini (mayo instead), and it was PHENOMENAL.  I fed it to a vegan-suspicious friend who loved it, and can't get enough.  I'm in love with this recipe.  I honestly don't understand how you made something *so good* out of so few ingredients (and taking about 5 minutes).  xoxoxo

Wow is this good!  And soooo quick & simple to make!  I can't wait to make more!  This would also be great as a dip for veggies or on crackers as an appetizer.  Mmmm-mmm!

Just made this with some last minute substitutions. Used organic green goddess salad dressing with a teaspoon of tahini, parsley instead of dill and diced marinated cucumbers & red onion instead of celery. Terrific recipe, thanks. Delish.

I just tried this... amazing! I even added some minced onion to it.
This sandwich is one of the reasons that I need to buy chickpeas in bulk

So yummy, and SO easy! It's the perfect last minute lunch. I recommend making a double batch because it's gone before you know it. :) I like the creamier taste of chickpeas so I always blend them a bit before adding any other ingredients. Delicious topped with pickle or relish, and great on toast!

This was a great base recipe. I used whatever I had around the house to make it though, so it turned out pretty different from your recipe. Here's what I used:
-hummus (on both pieces of bread)
-sprinkled chopped garlic, paprika, dill, salt, and pepper on the hummus
-used lettuce in the middle

It tasted really yummy! This will definatly be my "go to" lunch for those mornings I'm running a little behind!  :)>>>
