Easy Chickpea Salad Sandwich


Easy Chickpea Salad Sandwich
One of my favorite lunches to prepare is my version of a tuna salad sandwich. Instead of using tuna, I go with chickpeas. Now I won't lie to you all. Chickpeas by no way resembles the texture or taste of tuna. But, it's a damn good replacement and a great source of protein.

Easy Chickpea Salad Sandwich

I love pairing the sandwich with a pickle or even a handful of plain chips. the best part about this chickpea salad sandwich is that you can jazz it up with a bit of everything to your liking. There is no right or wrong way to making it. I personally try to make it as close to the Southern traditional tuna salad as I can. So, I incorporate most of those ingredients to this mix.

Ingredients:
-Chickpeas
-Sweet salad cubes
-Mayonnaise
-Yellow onions
-Avocado

Directions: 
-You can use canned chickpeas or raw. If using raw you will need to soak them overnight.
-Using a food processor or fork, smash your chickpeas until it gets to the consistency you desire. I personally like to have some chunks of the chickpeas in tact for more texture.
-Apply the smashed chickpeas into a bowl to add in your ingredients; Mayonnaise, onions, and sweet salad cubes.
-Stir all ingredients together until you reach your desired consistency. Add more mayonnaise or salad cubes to your tasting.
-Top it off with a half of avocado

And there you have it. I promise it's quick, simple, delicious, and filling.
