I got this sandwich idea when I was looking at vegan sandwich filling recipes….call me crazy but I don’t get the concept of adding Kelp powder to chickpeas to make fake tuna (y-u-c-k). Kelp is just nasty is all I have to say. And why wreck perfectly good chickpeas trying to fake fish? Let the chickpeas shine through – they make a tasty filling, especially combined with crunchy apples, pecans and celery!
- 15 ounce can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), rinsed and drained
- 1 small crisp apple, peeled, cored and diced
- ¼ cup celery, diced
- ¼ cup pecans, diced
- ¼ cup light mayonnaise
- 2 Tbsp sweet pickle relish
- 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 2 Tbsp red onion, diced
- ½ tsp dried dill weed
- bread or rolls
Pulse the chickpeas in a food chopper until roughly chopped, transfer to a mixing bowl, Add the remaining ingredients and stir well. Spread on bread or rolls.
Makes 2 to 3 sammies, depending on how thick you like your filling (3 average, 2 super thick).
