Chickpea & Green Pea Smash

A quick and vegan friendly sandwich filling. While I didn’t use any, a pinch of sweetener might be desired – or add fresh herbs chopped up. The pretty green color goes well with a hearty seed and nut filled bread.

Chickpea & Green Peas Smash


  • 1½ – ¾ cups cooked chickpeas (garbanzo beans) or 1 15-ounce can, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup frozen green peas, thawed (unsalted preferably)
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  • ¼ tsp each sea salt and ground black pepper


Add everything to a food processor, pulse until mostly smooth. Season to taste.

Use a sandwich filling or a dip. I served ours on Dave’s Killer Bread with a sprinkling of 2% mozzarella cheese in the middle.

Makes enough for 4 sandwiches.
