Easy Chickpea Salad Sandwich

Friday, January 18, 2019
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.

UPDATE: This recipe was originally posted August 9, 2018. I have added some updates to the recipe 

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 traditional tuna salad as I can. I even like to add a bit of mustard on top for a bit of a tang.

And there you have it. I promise it’s quick, simple, delicious, and filling. If chickpeas don’t do it for you, I have seen some use Heart of Palm for a more tuna texture. Again, this recipe is so flexible that you can jazz it up depending on how you may be feeling for the day.
