This Smashed Chickpea Salad Sandwich is a delicious way to enjoy nourishing chickpeas. Fabulous as a sandwich or simply as a salad.
For the Salad:
1 Can Chickpeas, drained and rinsed (aka Garbanzo) (425g)
¼ Cup Purple Onion, finely chopped (about ½ an onion) (36g)
2½ tsp Stone Ground Mustard (15g)
1½ tsp Apple Cider Vinegar (6g)
¼ + ⅛ tsp Pink Himalayan salt (or Sea Salt) (2g)
2 tsp Dill Weed, fresh-chopped
⅛ tsp Turmeric (optional for colour and health!)
8-10 grinds of fresh Black Pepper
For the Sandwich (options):
Mountain Bread Wraps or Rye Bread (we recommend King Henry's brand found at Woolworths)
Using a potato masher, rough-mash the chickpeas and avocado until most is smashed but there are still some whole chickpeas left. Add the onion, mustard, vinegar, salt, dill, optional turmeric and black pepper. Mix well. Taste for seasoning adjustment.
Store in a covered container for up to two days.
Delicious alone or as a sandwich with accompanying veggies.
