Chickpeas, potato and carrot salad sandwich

This is probably the messiest of all sandwiches but each napkin used is worth it. This chickpea salad is a great alternative to tuna salad and packed with lots of proteins.

Ingredients (makes 4 servings):

  • 1/2 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 medium size red tomato, finely diced
  • 1 cup chickpeas, cooked and drained
  • 1 cup carrot and potato, diced, cooked and drained (or substitute for 1 can of mixed vegetables, drained)
  • 4 tbsp. mayonnaise (vegan option: substitute for vegan mayo or tahini)
  • 1/4 tsp. lime juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the sandwich:

  • Bread slices of your choice
  • Lettuce or spinach leaves
  • Avocado, sliced
  • Mozzarella cheese, sliced, or
  • Spreadable cream cheese
  • Dill pickles, sliced
  • Mustard


In a mixing bowl combine the chickpeas, potato, carrot, onion, tomato, mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste.

Assemble sandwhich with your favourite toppings. Enjoy!
