Chickpea Salad Sandwiches

When it comes to meatless Monday, I focus a lot on dinner recipes because most of the meals I cook are dinners. I like to mix things up from time to time so this week’s meatless Monday recipe is a lunch recipe. I also like to appeal to all types of diets so it’s important to incorporate vegetarian meals for every time of day!

This sandwich is quick & easy to throw together. The chickpea salad can be made in advance which makes it great for taking to work or school. This sandwich is completely customizable so you can top it with whatever veggies you have on hand!

Start by gathering all your ingredients. Drain one can of chickpeas & put them into a shallow bowl.

Using a potato masher or fork, smash the chickpeas until they’re about 75% mashed, leaving a few still whole. Remove any large clumps of the chickpea skin that comes off while smashing the beans. Next add the smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt & pepper. Stir to combine. Then add the mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon at a time until the salad reaches a consistency you like. I used 2 tablespoons.

While making the salad, toast your bread. Then prep your veggies. I used mixed greens, sliced tomatoes, micro greens & avocado.
