My Smashed Chickpea Salad Sandwich Recipe Notes:
This was SO GOOD. I have been craving a sandwich to fill the void of an egg salad or tuna salad sandwich, so I decided to make this smashed chickpea salad version, and it turned out beautifully. I will share the recipe as I made it. But I wouldn't hesitate to mix it up. Capers or dill pickles would be nice chopped in, or how about curry powder with raisins and apple? Endless possibilities. This recipe really reminds me of tuna.
If you want it to taste more like an egg salad sandwich, I highly recommend you pick up some kala namak, a black sulpheric salt that literally will make whatever you sprinkle it on taste eggy. It's inexpensive and you don't need a lot, so it lasts a long time. (you can find it on amazon inexpensively.)
I do love this sandwich exactly as I made it though. I really like it on my home made brown bread. The sweetness from the bread really works with all of the other components. Your favourite bread or wraps work too. The main chickpea mixture tastes bright and fresh with dill, Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, minced red onion, celery, vegan mayo and a bit of smoked paprika.
Along with the chickpea mixture in my sandwich, I like to add a handful of greens or arugula, some crisp vegan bacon, and slices of tomato. Delish.
This will definitely be a new staple for me. So fresh, healthy & satisfying.
