A delicious protein packed filling for rolls and sandwiches. We like to lightly toast slices of gluten free bread before filling with lettuce and the smashed chickpea. You can also use this recipe as a salad served with additional leafy greens.

Smashed Chickpea Sandwich



Makes enough for 4-6 sandwiches

Preparation time: 15 minutes


What’s Good About It?

Chickpeas are packed with protein and fibre as well as plenty of B vitamins to keep the body energised.


  1. Place all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse briefly to mix thoroughly – you want the chickpeas to be broken up but still chunky.
  2. Season to taste
  3. Spread between slices of gluten free bread or toast and top with salad leaves.
  4. This is also delicious served as a salad
  5. Store leftovers in the fridge for 1-2 days
