These Curried Chickpea Salad Sandwiches only take about 10 minutes to make and have the most amazing flavors!  You will be eating them for lunch all winter long! {gluten free, vegan}

I’m back!  I meant to just take a little break for Thanksgiving and then I guess that turned into the week after Thanksgiving too…  Sorry about that!  I think it was a combination of sickness, family visiting, and laziness.  Probably mostly the laziness.  But I’m back now and I think you will love this Curried Chickpea Salad Sandwich!

I first discovered the idea of smashed chickpea salad sandwiches not too long ago and I really couldn’t believe I had never made them before.  They are ridiculously easy to make, take no time at all, and pretty much taste like chunky hummus smashed between two pieces of bread with lots of delicious flavors added.  Are you sold yet?!

Curry powder has been one of my food obsessions for a while now (it is amazing in this curry cilantro hummus!).  You just add a few pinches and it gives so much delicious, warm flavor to your dish.  I always used to make curried turkey salad sandwiches around the holidays so I thought I would give my recipe a try with chickpeas instead of turkey and it is delicious!  I also add some onions and celery for a little crunch and some dried cranberries and apple for some sweetness.  

These Curried Chickpea Salad Sandwiches are so delicious and easy to make, they will soon become a lunch staple for you this season :)

    Eeeee! I am a chickpea anything lova, so smashed chickers sammies are my jam. But your smashed and loaded chickpea sandwich is totally rockin’, my dear! Love all the flavors and textures you used! Just the healthy, yet deliciousness I need amongst all this holiday sugar and carb overload! Cheers and thanks for sharing the yum!

    I’m sorry to hear you were sick, Izzy — glad you’re feeling better! These sandwiches look so amazing! I love curry chicken salad, but these would be a perfect meatless option for me and I can’t wait to try it!

    So glad to see you back and feeling better, Izzy! We all need a short break sometimes :) These sandwiches are beautiful! I love smashed chickpeas and they sound amazing with the flavorful curry and crunchy apples! In fact, I think I want to make this for lunch today!

      Thank you, Kelly! They really are so good with the curry powder! I’m not sure there is much that isn’t good with curry, haha!

    Welcome back, Izzy! I’m glad you gave yourself a little time off. It flies by, doesn’t it?!
    Hopefully you’re feeling better!

    This sandwich looks amazing! I’ve had a mock tuna sandwich made with chickpeas and I loved it but I’ve never tried a curry version. The addition of crunchy apple sounds perfect. I’ll have to give this one a try soon! :)

    • She Likes Food says

      Thank you, Sarah! I am finally starting to feel better! Yes, time off goes by way too fast!

      A mock tuna sandwich sounds so good! Canned tuna was always my guilty pleasure! I think you would love this :)
