Tomato Basil Chickpea Salad Sandwich FTW! Whip up this healthy vegetarian chickpea salad in advance for speedy make-ahead lunches or picnic eats.
Some days I seriously wonder why I didn’t call this blog Chickpeas and Crayons.
I clearly underestimated my love of all things chickpea (and the moniker my little one end up rocking as well!) when choosing a title. Lately they’re all I crave and, if you’ve been reading along, you know just how deeply in love I am with these tasty little garbanzo beans.
Playing catch up? Here are a few of my favorite ways to scarf chickpeas lately:
- Crispy Roasted Shawarma Chickpeas
- Buffalo Chickpea Salad
- Creamy Tomato Soup with Crispy Parmesan Chickpeas
- Spicy Chickpea Veggie Burgers with Jalapeño and Zucchini
Since whipping up THIS garden veggie chickpea salad sandwich several weeks ago I’ve been crushing extra hard. Desperate to enjoy this smashed chickpea salad all Spring and Summer long without tiring of it, I decided to revamp the flavors a little and play around with my garden’s bounty. Since our tomatoes are starting to ripen and my basil is growing out of control, I give you chickpea salad sandwich 2.0: tomato basil edition!
