Smashed Vegan Chickpea Salad Sandwich
This vegan chickpea salad sandwich recipe is so incredibly easy and delicious!
It only needs one bowl, some basic and healthy ingredients, 10 minutes and a dash of vegan mayo.
I absolutely love simple salad recipes like this to toss on top of bread for a quick and no-fuss meal.
It’s perfect for busy week days, meal prepping, picnics, and just busy lives in general!This recipe has just a handful of ingredients and they are all held together with a bit of vegan mayo.
The rest are just some basic veggies and onion, and of course a good bit of chickpeas.
This recipe has a nice robust dill flavor, thanks to some added dill pickles and extra dill herb.
Easy Vegan Chicken Salad Recipe
Chicken and tuna salad sandwiches are very common recipes, but you’ll be amazed at how delicious smashed chickpeas can be as an alternative.
They offer protein and have a great texture for these kind of recipes.
Even if you’re not vegan or vegetarian, chickpeas are a great ingredient to switch things up and try something new!
This recipe is also very versatile and you can add in any other ingredients that you’d like.
I’ve made this with grapes, a bit of mustard, and slivered almonds and all were great additions!
How to Make One Bowl Chickpea Salad
Preparing the Ingredients
When I’m making this chickpea salad recipe I like to prepare all of my ingredients right away and then just assemble them in a large bowl.
The first step is to drain your chickpeas and add them to a large bowl, and then mash them with a potato masher (or a couple forks if that’s all you have).
I like to leave a little texture and not mash all the beans.
Then I chop the celery, pickles, red onion and cilantro and juice my lime.
Mixing and Serving Chickpea Salad
Add all of these to the bowl with the chickpeas and then toss in the vegan mayo, dill, salt and pepper.
Mix well until everything is evenly incorporated and that’s it!
Toast some bread and add some greens and you have a ridiculously quick and easy sandwich ready!
