Catherine Perez, MS, RD
1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1⁄3 cup hummus
1 tbsp pickled relish
3 sprigs fresh dill, minced
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp smoked paprika
1⁄4 tsp turmeric
1⁄8 tsp salt
1⁄2 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
6 slices whole grain bread
Additional tomatoes, greens and sandwich condiments of your choice
In a medium-size bowl, mash up chickpeas lightly using the back of a fork or a potato masher.
To chickpeas, add all the seasonings, relish and dill and give a good even mix using a spoon.
Add hummus to mixture and give it another good stir to evenly combine. If mixture appears a little dry or doesn’t clump well together, add in another spoonful of hummus.
Take bread, smear some condiments on top, then assemble sandwich as desired, layering greens, chickpea mixture and additional veggies to help add more texture.
