Chickpea of the Sea Filling

Submitted by: MADEMCHE

Introduction

adapted from the Kitchn.com - the original recipe called for umebochi vinegar I didn't have any - if you do, please use it gives a tart and sea like flavour. Also you could add some dulse flakes or crumbled nori as well if you want more "sea" flavour. adapted from the Kitchn.com - the original recipe called for umebochi vinegar I didn't have any - if you do, please use it gives a tart and sea like flavour.

Ingredients

    1 can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
    1/4 cup mayonnaise
    1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
    1 1/2 tablespoons umebochi vinegar (I used cider vinegar)
    2 teaspoons celery seeds
    1/4 cup chopped celery (about one rib)
    2 tablespoons sliced scallions (about two scallions)
    a few turns of the peppermill
    a pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)

    four slices whole grain bread (not included in calorie count)
    a few lettuce leaves, washed and dried well (not included in calorie count)

Directions

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 mayo.

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.

Makes 2 sandwiches.

  • These are amazing! A great veggie/vegan alternative to tuna. Although I may cut back the celery seeds to 1 teaspoon or eliminate then all together. - 9/21/10
