Chickpea Salad Sammich, part deux!

Chickpea Salad Sammich!
For 21 years, I have been vegetarian, and somehow I have never made nor eaten a chickpea salad sandwich. Hummus, yes. Plenty of oodles of heaps of hummus. Never chickpea salad.

Oh, what I was missing!

I guess I took myself as a Chickpea Purist, eating my salad-like chickpeas in a bean salad, plain or on a green salad. Something about adding mayo and mushing them up seemed, well, unneccesary. How wrong I was!

I used a whole can of chickpeas, eyeballed an adequate amount of Vegenaise, 2 squirts of horseradish dijon mustard, lots of freshly ground black pepper and a chopped garlic dill pickle. The mush was spread onto a whole wheat flax tortilla, wrapped with some lettuce and a sprinkling of cayenne. Sandwich number one went down so quickly that I barely remember it. The only proof is the photo above. So, of course I had to have another.

Tasty as heck.

I'm going to make your tempeh sandwich, methinks, but I'm going to try this one out in a non-cookalong way, too.

I got groceries to make that last night, too. But I fell asleep before 7pm, without supper!

aw - poor sleepy Carla :)

Ruthie - thanks!

Is it bad that I ate the entire bowl of chickpea mash by myself last night?

Hmm no. If you were hungry... and it filled you up... and you didn't puke it later, me thinks you're good. :-)
