A Vegetarian Sandwich

My motto could easily be, "she who dies with the most recipes wins!"  Many of you have heard of my "legendary" cookbook collection as well as the many binders of recipes I've found here and there.


I have a lot of recipes that I make often.  But I am always in search of something new.  Although I will never give up meat. . . are you kdding?. . . give me a nice cut of meat and my smoker and I can create a masterpiece. . . I do eat a lot of vegetarian meals.  I can remember, back in the day, when vegetarian meals were boring - sticks and pebbles, actually.  Those days are long gone.


Recently I did a search online for vegetarian sandwiches.  Wow!  I found some real winners!  Here is one.  It is a chickpea salad sandwich.  This is similar to making tuna salad.  There are many ways you can make it.  Here is how I did it:


2 cups dried garbanzo beans
chopped red bell pepper
pumpkin seeds
about a rounded tablespoon of mayo
about a rounded teaspoon of Dijon mustard
juice of one lime
1 to 2 teaspoons of dill seed
salt and pepper to taste


Soak and cook the garbanzo beans.  Rinse in a colander.


Mash the beans, leaving a handful whole.  Combine all the other ingredients and stir well.


Chill until ready to serve.  Use a nice whole wheat or artisan type bread for the sandwiches.


I found that I prefer my sandwich warm, so I put it in the microwave for 15 to 20 seconds.


Enjoy!
