Smashed chickpea sandwich is a delicious meatless sandwich topping – filled with great nutrients and vegetarian protein. It’s a hearty sandwich, full of flavor and I particularly love that I can add it to your weekly meal prepping. Smashed chickpeas salad will stay in your fridge perfectly fresh for a couple of days.
Easy, delicious, healthy and convenient – who doesn’t like that?
Watercress is the secret weapon in this sandwich- a spicy mustard green that enhances any sandwich and gives vegetarian sandwiches an extra flavorful boost! Along with fresh clover sprouts, this sandwich delivers a great amount of enzymes, as well. Enzymes boost cell functions in our bodies, including digestion and energy conversion. That’s why we feel extra energetic after eating enzyme-rich foods.
Tahini is another favorite. Heck – ever since I discovered Tahini, I pretty much put it in almost anything, including my brownies, no kidding. Look out for my Tahini dressing post these days – serious deliciousness!!
2 slices of Bread, Multigrain works great!
1/4 cup Lettuce, I personally love baby kale, but any lettuce will work perfectly
1 can of Chickpeas, cooked
1/4 cup Greek Yogurt or Vegan Mayo or any mayo of your choice
1 tsp Tahini
1 tsp Olive Oil or Avocado Oil
Place chickpeas in a bowl and mash them with a potato masher. Add yogurt or mayo, tahini, oil, salt and pepper.
Layer baby kale onto bread slices, top with chickpea mixture, add some more baby kale, sprouts, a few leaves of watercress and dill and top it off with the second slice of bread.
Serve with sliced avocado… do I need to say more?
