Sandwich of the Week: 'Don't be a Chump' Chickpea Sandwich
Posted October 22, 2009 by Marta Holmberg
I know we’ve shared many delicious sandwiches with you over the past several weeks, and it’s my turn this week! While there are tons of awesome “faux” products out there these days like faux meats, soy cheeses, and vegan mayo (and I fully recommend you try them), I decided to make things even easier on you this week by keeping the “faux” out.
Of course, I couldn’t resist sharing a recipe with you from PETA’s Vegan College Cookbook, so if you’re a lover of chickpeas (AKA garbanzo beans), like me, then keep reading!
I bring you the ‘Don’t be a Chump’ Chickpea Sandwich:
Yum! Here’s how to make it:
- 1/2 (15 ounce) can of chickpeas, drained and mashed with a fork
- Italian dressing, to taste
- 2 slices bread (I used multigrain and toasted them for a little extra pizzazz)
- 1/4 cup shredded carrots
- 4 cherry tomatoes, halved (I decided to get a little crazy and use grape tomatoes! I know, I need to calm down.)
Mix the chickpeas with some Italian dressing and spread on one slice of bread. Top with the shredded carrots, the tomatoes, and add the other slice of bread.
Makes 1 serving
Some tips: You can stop by a salad bar and grab some shredded carrots and tomatoes if you don’t want to buy whole containers of either, and feel free to tweak the sandwich to your personal preferences. I like to see it as a jumping off point. Love avocado? Toss some of that green goodness in there! Hate chickpeas? Experiment with another bean. And if you suck at bean mashin’, try using a blender or food processor (though it will have more of a hummus texture—but that’s never a bad thing!).
Hope you enjoy it!
