  • 2 ½ cups chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 10 slices whole wheat-bread
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise substitute vegan-mayo to make vegan
  • 2 tbsp spicy brown-mustard
  • ½ cup red or yellow-onion diced
  • ¼ cup sunflower seeds
  • ¼ cup celery diced
  • 1 tsp dry dill
  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • ¼ cup carrot diced
  • fresh-ground black-pepper to taste
  • ½ tsp salt


  • If using canned chickpeas, drain liquid and pat dry with a towel to remove excess moisture.
  • Add the chickpeas, tahini, brown-mustard and mayonnaise a medium-bowl.
  • Mash with a fork or potato-masher till the majority of the chickpeas are pureed. Alternately, use a food-processor to mash the chickpeas.
  • Add remaining ingredients into the chickpea mixture. Stir till evenly dispersed.
  • Portion out ⅕ of the recipe onto a slice of whole wheat-bread. Top with tomato, lettuce and all your favourite sandwich fillings.


For extra-flavor, toast the sunflower seeds & pumpkin in a hot-pan till lightly-browned. This provides a wonderful crunch and toastiness into the salad!
