Curry flavoured smashed chickpea salad sandwiches with smashed avocado, cucumber ribbons, shredded carrots and kale served on multigrain bread makes a delicious vegetarian and vegan friendly healthy sandwich.
Whenever I need a light, quick and tasty lunch, I can’t think of a better option than an easy sandwich. Especially with being home more it’s nice to have the time to make a sandwich any day of the week. I especially love how quick these sandwiches come together. Whip them up in no time- they only take about 15 minutes. Nothing here needs cooking and you can easily swap out some of the toppings for items you have on hand.
I love the curry combined with the chickpea salad instead of a simple more classic mayo and vinegar based filling. It adds so much more flavour. I don’t find curry to be spicy its rather a savoury and sweet taste which works great with chickpeas as they easily take on whatever seasoning you give them. The fresh avocado and cucumber are perfect neutral tasting toppings that don’t take away the curry flavours.
To make these sandwiches we always recommend starting with the sauces. This gives them some extra time for the flavours to develop. Next is having all the ingredients prepped and ready to assemble. Have everything chopped so that you can form your sandwich making assembly line.
The smashed chickpea salad filling makes a generous amount enough for 4. Double the recipe for extra weekday lunches. Make extra curry mayo to serve with other delicious sandwiches or add to wraps for future meals.
