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.
