Grilled Chickpea Salad Sandwich

Healthy vegan comfort food anyone?  

Yes please!  This grilled chickpea sandwich is protein packed and reminiscent of the grilled cheese sandwiches I loved in my youth. Chickpeas are also extremely high in fiber.. two cups of them contain the total recommended daily value. Conveniently, canned beans seem to have about the same nutritional benefits as dried beans you soak and cook yourself (HERE is a video by Dr. Michael Greger explaining.)

Ingredients:

  • 1 can chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 1 Tbsp sriracha
  • 3 Tbsp vegan mayo ( I used Vegenaise)
  • 3 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 stalk of celery diced
  • 2-3 green onions chopped
  • Ezekial bread or whole grain bread of choice
  • Vegan margarine ( I used Earth Balance)

Instructions:

Mash chickpeas with sriracha and then add the vegan mayo, nutritional yeast and salt.  Mix and then stir in celery and green oezekialnions. Make sandwiches, grill and enjoy!

I used Ezekial bread to up the protein content.  Two slices contains 8 grams of protein.

 

If you haven’t tried it, I would definitely recommend it!
