Chickpea Salad Sandwiches

I was asked recently about good lunch ideas as a busy mom and this was my most recent find :)

This is easy and fast! A great lunch to make and then throw in the fridge for later. I loved it on bread but I'm sure it would be great on pita, crackers or a bed of lettuce.

Special Equipment: potato masher

Level of Difficulty: Veggies get chopped up so put the baby on your back or wait till they are occupied for a few minutes.


  • 1 (15-oz) can chickpeas (or 1.5 cups cooked chickpeas)

What do I do?
