Last night, I was watching the most recent Bon Appetite Test Kitchen Table Talks – “Pro Chefs Make 9 Kinds of Pantry Sandwiches.” First of all, if you are not watching BA videos, get on that. Like, right now. I aspire to be Claire (she even watches Real Housewives!!). Anyways – I was pleasantly surprised when Chris made a chickpea salad as his pantry sandwich! Sadly, it was not vegan. But, watching the video made me realize that I have never shared my favourite Vegan Chickpea Salad Sandwiches recipe!
If you watch the video, you’ll realize mine is actually much closer to Claire’s recipe, but veganized. I’d love to do a show like Claire’s Gourmet Makes, but call it Gourmet Makes Vegan and Gluten-Free! This is kind of like that: “Gourmet Makes Vegan and Gluten-Free: Claire’s Pantry Sandwich”? Would you watch that?
Anyways – back to the recipe! Here is my favourite pantry sandwich: The Vegan Chickpea Salad Sandwich!
What’s in Vegan Chickpea Salad Sandwiches?
This vegan chickpea salad is loaded with everything you’d ever want to put on a sandwich! Mashed up chickpeas are mixed with:
- Vegan Mayo (I used veganaise)
- A little dijon mustard
- Dill pickles
- Red onion
The salad also has:
- Sunflower seeds (these add a lovely crunch and taste)
- Splash of Apple Cider Vinegar
- Fresh Dill
