This is hands down my favorite sandwich, and it’s my vegan answer to a tuna or chicken salad sandwich. It’s super easy to make, tastes great, and I almost always have all the ingredients in my pantry and fridge. You can enjoy as-is, or you can layer on some extra veggies. This is such a classic in my house that you’ll often find me forking at leftovers straight from the fridge.
Ingredients
  • 1 can (19 oz) chickpeas, drained and rinsed (about 2 cups)
  • 3 Tbsp Mayonnaise for Days (page 208) or store-bought vegan mayo
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard (check for gluten-free, if necessary)
  • 2 tsp capers (optional)
  • 1⁄4 tsp salt
  • 1⁄4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1⁄4 red onion, chopped
  • 8 slices of bread or 4 tortillas (gluten-free, if preferred)
Instructions
  1. Toss the chickpeas, mayonnaise, mustard, capers, salt, and pepper into a food processor and pulse to combine until the chickpeas reach a nice mashed texture, but not puréed. Alternatively, you could do this with a fork or potato masher if you don’t have a food processor. Add the celery and red onion and pulse a few more times just to incorporate, or stir to mix in.
  2. Pile on top of bread or a tortilla. Top with extra veggies of your choice if you wish.
Notes
Add 5 minutes' prep time for the mayonnaise.
