After a holiday in Dubai I fell in LOVE 👉CHICKPEAS.
Got my chickpea from citidale super market, Spar (Both supermarket in Nigeria)
So it easy as mashing chickpeas, adding some extra tang and flavor from pickles and capers, finding your favorite whole grain bread, and enjoying a "No Tuna" Salad Sandwich!
Salad Sandwich taken from @forksoverknives @minimalistbaker
1 15-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup roasted unsalted sunflower seeds (if salted, scale back on added salt)
3 Tbsp vegan mayo (sub tahini for a more earthy, nutty flavor)
1/2 tsp dijon or spicy mustard (if using tahini instead of mayo, use 1/4 tsp)
1 Tbsp maple syrup (or sub agave or honey if not vegan)
1/4 cup chopped red onion
2 Tbsp fresh (or 1 Tbsp dried) dill, finely chopped
healthy pinch each salt and pepper (to taste)
4 pieces healthy bread, lightly toasted
optional: Sliced avocado, onion, tomato, and or lettuce for serving
Instructions •Add chickpeas to a mixing bowl and lightly mash with a fork for texture. Then add sunflower seeds, mayo, mustard, maple syrup, red onion, dill, salt, and pepper and mix with a spoon. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.
Toast bread (if desired) and prepare any other sandwich toppings you desire (tomato, onion, lettuce). Scoop a healthy amount of filling onto two of the pieces of bread, add desired toppings and sauce, and top with other two slices of bread.
Sunflower-chickpea mixture will keep covered in the fridge for up to a few days, making it great for quick weekday lunches!
