Vegetarian Sandwich Recipe: Chickpea Salad
When I first became a vegetarian, sandwiches always seemed challenging. This hearty chickpea salad will satisfy even a non-vegetarian appetite. The recipe is super quick to whip up and is also goes nicely served on top of a bed of greens to dress up a salad for a lower carbohydrate lunch option.
- 2 cups cooked garbanzo beans/chickpeas (or one 15 oz can)
How to cook dry beans

- 2 tablespoons mustard (my favorite is Trader Joe's Hot & Sweet mustard)

- In medium bowl, mash garbanzo beans with a fork or a . kitchen masher
- Add mayonnaise, mustard, salt, pepper, & garlic powder. Mix until well combined
- Chop up celery into small pieces
- Add celery to bowl and stir
- Use chickpea salad along with your favorite bread, sandwich wrap, pita pocket or even top some salad greens for a low-carb option.
