Every once in a while I get a hankering for a good old-fashioned sandwich. What I love about this Green Goddess Sandwich recipe is you can make the flavorful smashed chickpea salad ahead and assemble the sandwiches (or wraps) as needed during the busy work week! The flavorful Chickpea salad keeps for 4-5 days in the fridge!
How to make a VEGAN Chickpea Salad Sandwich!
Back in my twenties, right after college, my friend Tonia and I started a very illegal sandwich business down in Los Angeles. How we got away with it, and how we had the audacity to do this, I still have no idea, but necessity is the mother of invention, and so we just did it.
Eventually, we went on to open a real, bonafide restaurant, but every time I make a sandwich, I can’t help but think of those crazy sandwich-making days, when life still felt a little wild and free and full of possibilities!
This week I’ve partnered with Maille Mustard to bring you this hearty vegan, Spring Goddess Sandwich made with an herby Chickpea Salad, loaded up with crunchy radishes, cucumber, carrots, avocado and sprouts.
Their old-style whole grain mustard, partnership aside, is truly one of my favorite whole-grain mustards out there, and it’s especially great for perking up vegan sandwiches.
It starts with making the quick Chickpea Salad. Fresh dill, parsley and Maille mustard give it such a burst of flavor!
This could easily be turned into a wrap or stuffed into a pita, or simply served over a bed of greens and/or Everyday Quinoa. And of course, feel free to use gluten-free bread or wraps.
To add creaminess to the vegan Chickpea Salad, I used a Vegan Mayo.
You can use store-bought, or make your own vegan mayo!
So tasty, so easy and so yummy. Very satisfying!
