VeganMoFo Day 11: Chickpea Salad Sandwiches, two ways

Have you ever had a chickpea salad sandwich? If not, you’re missing out. These are two excellent variations on the same basic idea: smash chickpeas, add something creamy, flavor it up, and stick it between two slices of bread. Or just eat it straight out of the bowl because it's that delicious

Chickpea Tuna-ish Salad (adapted from this post on the Kitchn)

1 (15 oz) can or 1½ cups chickpeas
¼ cup vegan mayo
1 teaspoon whole grain mustard
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon crumbled nori 
1 tablespoon chopped red onion (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste

Place chickpeas in the bowl of a food processor and pulse two or three times to roughly chop (you can also just do this with a fork). Add remaining ingredients and pulse two or three times more to incorporate. Done.

Chickpeas Avocado Salad (from Two Peas & Their Pod)

1 (15 oz) can or 1½ cups chickpeas, rinsed
1 large ripe avocado 
¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped green onion
Juice from 1 lime
Salt and pepper, to taste

In a medium bowl, use a fork to mash the chickpeas and avocado together. Mix in the rest of the ingredients and you're done.

P.S. Happy National Coming Out Day!! I'm working on some rainbowy deliciousness that I'll post tomorrow, but for now, have some of these cupgaykes I made a couple of weeks ago:


  1. I looove chickpea salad and do it the way of your first recipe, kind of. I havn't had it in quite some time now, time to do it again! And that is such a cute dog.

  3. Cupgaykes, aahhh, I love it! Those look beautiful. I might even find the motivation to try to make some (I'm very lazy ;p).
