Yesterday my husband said he wanted something to make a sandwich with other than peanut butter and I set to work on making something I knew he would love.  And I started my search on Pinterest where I found plenty of recipes but all were just not quite right.  Either they used mayo or oil or something else that we don’t consider “compliant” with our WFPBNO lifestyle.  I grabbed a note book, wrote down a few ingredients I wanted to add and went to work.  He happily has been eating sandwiches for lunch the past few days saying he finally feels full and satisfied with lunch.

Today I share with you that recipe:

Whole Food, Plant Based Easy Chickpea Mash

  • 1 can drained chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
  • 1/4 – avocado (optional, many times I don’t bother adding this)
  • 1 tablespoon Tahini (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped red onion
  • 1 tablespoon chopped celery
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon plant milk (i used original unsweetened almond milk)
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

Place chickpeas into a bowl and start to mash with a fork.  Add avocado, tahini, & chopped onion and celery and mix together.  Add final ingredients and mix together and serve on bread or bun. Refrigerate leftovers. Makes 4-6 servings.
