Problem: You need a cheap, healthy and easy lunch for school or work
Solution: Chickpea Salad Sandwich…..YOUR way!
I love Chickpeas! Do YOU call them Chickpeas or Garbanzo beans? We call them Chickpeas…..actually, each time I hear the word “garbanzo” I think of Gonzo from the Muppets….haha! Regardless of what you call them, they are super cheap and so useful….hummus…salads…burgers…definitely a pantry staple. One of my favorite ways to use Chickpeas is by making Chickpea Salad Sandwiches. They are delicious and very convenient.
Do you have a can of Chickpeas? Do you have celery? Carrots? A lemon? Vegenaise? Bread? Yes? Great! You can make Chickpea Salad Sandwiches my favorite way! Don’t have those things? Make them YOUR way!
At lunch you can brag to your co-workers about how cheap, easy, healthy and DELICIOUS your lunch is. 🙂
If you have a can of Chickpeas and some bread, you probably have the makings of a pretty awesome sandwich. Don’t have Vegenaise on hand? Use hummus or tahini. Don’t have carrots or celery? Use apples or scallions or whatever you want. Leave out the Old Bay…add in whatever seasonings you love! That’s my favorite part….figuring out what I have and how I am going to use it.
For the sandwich pictured, I had all of those things on hand, so I did not have to go out and buy anything at all…..Yay! I can get 4 good sandwiches out of 1 can — See? Cheap and easy! I am facing a crazy busy weekend, so I will be making these for Sunday’s beachside lunch with my nephew and my kiddos. 🙂
Have you ever made Chickpea Salad Sandwiches? What’s your favorite way to make them? I’d love to try it your way! Thanks and enjoy your weekend! Oh…..and eat your freaking vegetables! ~ Keenun
