• Chickpea of the Sea Sandwich Filling


    This recipe comes highly recommended by Laura from our Facebook community and are definitely on my to-make list!  Recipe from The Kitchn.

    adapted from The Kripalu Cookbook. Makes 2 to 4 sandwiches


    • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
    • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
    • 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons umeboshi vinegar
    • 2 teaspoons celery seeds
    • 1/4 cup chopped celery, from about one rib
    • 2 tablespoons sliced scallions, from about about two scallions
    • Pinch cayenne pepper, optional
    • Freshly ground black pepper
    • a pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
    • Whole grain or artisan-style bread, to serve
    • Lettuce leaves, washed and dried well, to serve


    Place chickpeas in the bowl of a food processor and pulse two or three times to roughly chop. Add remaining ingredients and pulse two or three times more to incorporate.

    Lay out the bread and place the lettuce leaves on two slices. Spoon on the Chickpea of the Sea and top with the other slice of bread. Cut in half and enjoy!

    Vegan Alternative: 
    Use vegan mayo or a vinaigrette in place of the mayonnaise. (Try one of these two vegan mayonnaise recipes.)

    Unplugged Alternative: 
    Place the drained chickpeas in a bowl and mash slightly with a fork. Add remaining ingredients and stir until combined. You may want to chop the celery and onions a little finer for this version, since they won’t be getting an additional chop in the processor.
