Chickpea Salad Sandwich

I just love sandwiches.  They are the perfect quick meal.  As soon as I saw a recipe for a creamy chickpea salad sandwich from Becca at Amuse Your Bouche, I knew it was something I had to try.  The filling can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge so you have lunches ready for days - something important for a mom of 2 young children!  The whole family loved this sandwich...even my 18 month old.  Well, she couldn't eat the actual sandwich, but I set some of the filling aside, made sure it was well-mashed, and she ate it off a fork.  :)  The original recipe is great, but I tweaked it a bit for my tastes.  I hope you try it!

Ingredients (makes 3-4 sandwiches)

15oz chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 tsp garlic powder
3 green onions, chopped
1/2 bell pepper, diced
2 Tbsp parsley, minced
2-3 Tbsp lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
bread slices
onion, sliced
spicy brown mustard

  1. Lightly mash the chickpeas using a fork or potato masher.  In a large bowl, combine the chickpeas with the garlic powder, green onion, bell pepper, parsley, and lemon juice.  
  2. Build your sandwiches with a layer of brown mustard on the lower piece of bread, a heaping portion of chickpea salad, and a sprinkle of paprika (to taste).  Top it off with the lettuce and sliced onion.  Enjoy!
