If you’re not familiar with Sam, she’s the founder behind the vegan blog It Doesn’t Taste Like Chicken. She’s been cranking out recipes, paired with beautiful pictures, for a few years now! And last year, she came out with her first cookbook: Fuss Free Vegan. It’s a book containing 101 different comfort-food recipes, veganized, so that you can eat all of your favorites.

Along with tasty recipes, Sam also gives tips on how to eat vegan on a budget, stocking your pantry, and menu ideas for a variety of occasions! Some of the other recipes that caught my eye were the Better-than-Bakery Cheddar & Chive Scones, Quick & Easy Pho, and 24 Karat Carrot Cake. Mmmm..

And while the chickpea salad sandwich is a classic at this point, this recipe will totally hit the spot. Customize it with your favorite sandwich toppings and it still comes together in mere minutes. Can’t beat that!

GO-TO CHICKPEA SALAD SANDWICH

"This is hands down my favorite sandwich, and it’s my vegan answer to a tuna or chicken salad sandwich. It’s super easy to make, tastes great, and I almost always have all the ingredients in my pantry and fridge. You can enjoy as-is, or you can layer on some extra veggies. This is such a classic in my house that you’ll often find me forking at leftovers straight from the fridge."

Ingredients

  • 1 can 19 oz chickpeas, drained and rinsed (about 2 cups)
  • 3 Tbsp Mayonnaise for Days page 208 or store-bought vegan mayo
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard check for gluten-free, if necessary
  • 2 tsp capers optional
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 2 stalks celery chopped
  • ¼ red onion chopped
  • 8 slices of bread or 4 tortillas gluten-free, if preferred

Instructions

  1. Toss the chickpeas, mayonnaise, mustard, capers, salt, and pepper into a food processor and pulse to combine until the chickpeas reach a nice mashed texture, but not puréed.
  2. Alternatively, you could do this with a fork or potato masher if you don’t have a food processor. Add the celery and red onion and pulse a few more times just to incorporate, or stir to mix in. Pile on top of bread or a tortilla. Top with extra veggies of your choice if you wish.
