  1. Oh yum! I've always wanted to make a chickpea salad sandwich I like the idea of it and I just recently found Indian black salt it has a sulfurous taste so this recipe can really mimic an egg salad sandwich which will impress my newly vegan husband!

    1. It is really simple and delicious! I hope he enjoys it!

  2. I love chickpea salad sandwiches! They're fab for packed lunches and picnics, aren't they? When we're on long road trips or flights, I use tortilla wraps instead of bread though, as I find they hold up better.

    I mash my chickpeas with my own veganaise mixed with a little ketchup and chipotle Tabasco, then mix in spring onion, red pepper, and some parsley . It's heavenly, I tell you! I also use this mix to make lettuce wraps, sometimes adding chopped sun-dried tomatoes too. So fab when you want something filling but not too heavy.

    Gosh, my tummy is really rumbling now! LOL!

    More chickpea recipes are always welcome! (Have you checked out my shakshuka? I think you'll love it!)

    1. Thanks for the tips. That sounds great. We saw your Shakshuka on twitter and it looks incredible.

  3. I never get tires of chickpea salad! I love all the different variations. I'll be trying yours next!
