Mashed Chickpea Salad Sandwich
with tomatoes / red onions / chips

Active: 25 min Total: 25 min

Smarts: As with other creamy protein-based salads, be sure to taste and customize, adding more seasoning, mustard, or relish if you'd like.

Prep

  1. Make chickpea salad - Chop green onions and set aside. Drain and rinse beans. Transfer beans to a mixing bowl. Use a pastry blender, potato masher, or the back of a large spoon to mash beans until beans are broken apart and some are smooth and creamy. (For texture, it’s a good idea to leave some larger pieces of beans.) To beans, add green onions, pickle relish, mayonnaise, mustard, and lemon juice. Season with some salt and pepper. Add some more mayonnaise if you’d like it creamier. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Onions / Cucumbers / Tomatoes / Lettuce - Prep as directed.

Delicious! Could have just eaten the chickpea salad with a spoon. Toasted the bread a little too long, so it was falling out everywhere, but no one minded. Followed directions almost exactly - except that we forgot the cucumbers. Added some fruit as a side to round things out. So nice to have one that doesn't take too long, either!
