Sandwiches, y’all. I can’t really imagine how anybody can not like them. I love me a good sandwich. Now I’m adding this Dill Chickpea Sandwich to the list of sandwiches I love.
I grew up eating sandwiches all the time and they are still my go-to meal. Especially when I travel for some reason. If I’m traveling I’m definitely going to seek out sandwiches to eat. I think it’s kind of like a comfort thing to me. They are simple and comforting and I know I probably won’t be disappointed.
I used to eat tuna sandwiches a lot as a kid and I still actually like them but tuna is so sketchy. Not only the way that it’s caught but what’s actually in the tuna. It’s all just no bueno so it’s probably better to just avoid it all together. Enter chickpeas in place of tuna.
I’ve known about this little swap for a while of course but I finally got around to putting my own twist on it and it’s really good. It’s the same texture and the same overall flavors. Obviously chickpeas and tuna don’t taste the same but dressing it up the same way you would a tuna sandwich will give you the same idea.
You can’t go wrong with this sandwich! It’s a great plant based alternative to a classic. Especially if you’re looking for some new meatless monday options for lunch. You could even put some vegan (or regular!) cheese and make a melt obviously. Or you could mash in an avocado in place of vegan mayo. Or instead of bread you could put it in a whole wheat tortilla and make a wrap.
If you do try this or any other recipe, let me know! Leave a comment and don’t forget to take a picture and tag it #modernlittlevictories on Instagram! I’d love to hear what you think and see what you create in your kitchen.
