Vegetarian Chickpea Sandwich Filling
Serve this tasty sandwich spread on crusty whole grain rolls or pita bread, with lettuce and tomato.
This sandwich has a tasty combination of chickpeas and fresh vegetables seasoned with zesty garlic scapes, capers, paprika, and Italian dressing.
I don't like mayonnaise so I used flax seed oil instead (which made it vegan) and added cayenne pepper, and miso (as I didn't have any dill pepper on hand). It was very tasty!
This is so good. Thanks for the recipe, I've been looking for a vegetarian recipe that was like chicken or tuna salad. I did add a little more mayo to make it more spreadable.
This "Vegetarian Chickpea Sandwich Filling" was reasonably good and very filling. I wouldn't hesitate to make it again. I think it would have tasted much better if I had made it with a "creamier" chickpea (my chickpeas were "mealy": YVES VEGGIE CUISINE organic). Thank you FISHLOVE for sharing your recipe.
I've tried mashing and processing chickpeas before and it's a disaster, so I decided to leave them whole and eat this as a salad instead of sandwich spread. It was marvelous! I did add more than 1 stalk of celery and since I didn't have any dill weed, I added about 1/2 T of juice from a dill pickle jar. Also added a touch of garlic salt. Turned out great!
I can't believe I haven't reviewed this recipe yet. It has become a regular in my arsenal over the past few months. I've used it for appetizers on crackers, for sandwiches, in pitas and in flour tortillas for a wrap. The only thing I change is that I add a bit of finely chopped garlic--seemed to be the only thing it was missing. My meat-loving, veggie-hating roommate fondly calls it a "more sophisticated hummus" and I'm pretty sure my other vegetarian roommate sneaks spoonfuls out of the fridge. Bottom line: LOVE IT. Thanks so much.
So easy, so versatile, so delicious! I’m not a vegetarian, but this is a recipe that makes me think I could be! I find myself craving this often. Sometimes I put it on crackers or a jicama wrap (from Trader Joe’s). Also, I add a variety of spices or veggies...red pepper, diced jalapeños, hot sauce, garlic, turmeric, shredded carrot, etc....
