I love a good sandwich; so when I saw this Garbanzo Sandwich Spread on the Minimalist baker blog I had to give it a try! I made a few adjustments to suit my own tastes and I really like it. I hope you like it too!

On a side note I am really loving that blog! I have tried several recipes and they have all came out great. And the pictures are AMAZING!

Garbanzo Sandwich Spread

  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • ¼ cup roasted sunflower seeds
  • 3 tablespoons vegan mayo
  • ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup chopped red onion
  • ½ tablespoon dried dill weed
  • ½ teaspoon sweetener of choice (optional)
  • salt to taste
  • Optional toppings: sliced avocado, onion, tomato, and/or lettuce for serving.

Garlic Herb Sauce

  • ¼ cup plain hummus
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ¾ teaspoon dried dill weed
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Water to thin (If sauce is too thick)
  • Salt to taste
  1.  Prepare garlic herb sauce by mixing all the ingredients and set aside.
  2. Add garbanzos to a food processor and process until broken up. (it works great if they are different textures; some more whole, and some more mashed up.)
  3. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
  4. To build a sandwich by spread a little sauce on a slice of whole grain bread, then top with some of the garbanzo spread. Add avocado, onion, tomato and lettuce as desired.
