Chickpea Salad Sandwich


2 slices whole wheat bread
soy mayonnaise
pickle relish
vegan soy cheese, optional
lettuce, optional- i like the spring greens mix
tomato slices, optional
fresh ground pepper


When I became vegetarian, i missed the weirdest things, and one of those things was chicken and tuna salad sandwiches. This is a good substitute, because with the mustard, mayonnaise, and relish, you can hardly tell what the main ingredient is anyway. Non-vegetarians will like it too!

Put the chickpeas, mustard, mayonnaise, and pickle relish (or whatever you would typically make meat salads with) in a bowl and mash with a fork into a lumpy consistency (should have texture, not smooth like hummous). Put cheese on one slice of vegan bread spoon chickpea salad over it. Top with lettuce and tomato slices and add pepper to taste. Put other slice of bread on top to close sandwich and slice in half from corner to corner. Yummy... enjoy! Wink

Serves: 1

Preparation time: 5 min

*Comments , tips and hints

This is awesome! The only change I made was adding some kidney and pinto beans into the mix as I like a variety of beans. But it is difficult to tell the difference from a tuna fish sandwich when you add the Nayonaise, relish, and mustard. LOL, I initially thought it sounded pretty gross cuz I'd only put mayo in tuna, but I tried it and its great. I can appease the more carnivorous members of my family without a hassle!

Archived comment by: bandanabart I really loved this! I will never miss a tuna or chicken salad sandwich again. I made it with Lemonaise light, brown mustard, dill relish and freshly cracked pepper and put it in a pita pocket with some spring greens and sliced tomatoes. Mashing the chickpeas a bit with your fork gives it the perfect texture. I found it a very satisfying quick lunch.

Archived comment by: beansidhe Fantastic! I have a lot of recipes for spreads but wanted something heartier with texture, and this is perfect. I was also pleased with how quick it is to make. I added in some chopped up celery and grated carrot too.

Archived comment by: ksuhr I remain obsessed with this stuff. A friend asked me for measurements so he could make it, so for anyones befefit, here's what I use: 1 15 oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed 3 tbsp nayonaise 2 tsp relish 2 tsp mustard most of 1 carrot, grated 4 inches of celery stalk diced fine

Archived comment by: ksuhr ooh nice recently-veg boyfriend is always saying there's no recipes for sandwiches!!! but this one appeases both of us. i used to love tuna salad, and this is so good.

Archived comment by: wishywashy This is so good, and so simple! I made some last night to bring for my lunch today and I couldnt stop tasting it! I added dill pickle juice to help mash it up a bit without adding too much fat with extra nayonaise.

Archived comment by: simplysara Aww man...I was craving a chicken/tuna/turkey/ANYTHING salad sandwich, so I decided to try this recipe. I drained and rinsed a can of chickpeas, mashed them until lumpy, then added vegenaise (soy mayo), relish, chopped celery, chopped green onion, mustard, salt and pepper...mixed it all up, plopped it on a sandwich....It was divine.

Archived comment by: katica Try adding chopped red bell pepper to any of your sandwich spreads, it adds a whole new layer of flavor.

Archived comment by: dedraimelda This is a great recipe, very yummy and definitely hits the salad sandwich spot. Thanks.

Archived comment by: saramathison I add tofu and scallions to mine. Toasted whole wheat sour dough bread is great with it.

Archived comment by: idcgirl I loved this sandwhich!!!! I chopped up some celery and red peppers, and instead of normal mustard I used Dijon, which gave it an extra zip!! I'm new at being vegetarian and I think this recipe will be one of my favourites for a long time to come!!

Archived comment by: sarahEizabeth yummy, this was so good! I shredded some cheese in with the chickpeas and I cooked them with a sandwichmarker! It was so good!

Archived comment by: hitchhiker if you're worried about fats, nayonaise also comes in fat free.

Archived comment by: veggiewedgie WOW!! so exciting!!! after reading the recipe i ran to the kitchen. i made mine with some mayo, mustard, dill relish, onions, celery, (chickpeas, of course) and threw in some diced cucumber for added interest. my recipe made 1 and 3/4 cup. i figured that it came to about 82 calories per 1/4 cup serving. it was FABULOUS! it was so oddly reminiscent of tuna/chicken salad... that i had to remind myself it WASNT meat. (as a vegetarian... real meat makes me a little queasy!) great recipe... thank you for posting it!

Archived comment by: debram1218 Excellent! I've been veggie for 16 years, and pretty much gave up sandwhiches altogether. This recipe has given me sandwhiches back. The only problem is I can't stop eating it. A batch never lasts...
