Servings 2 sandwiches


  • 1-15 oz. can chickpeas drained
  • 2 tbsp. vegan mayo
  • 1 ½ tbsp. dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup diced pickles
  • 3 tbsp. hulled sunflower seeds
  • squeeze of fresh lemon juice
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • sliced bread
  • tomatoes
  • red onion
  • lettuce


  • In medium sized bowl mash your chickpeas well. Make sure you drain the chickpeas before mashing them. You do not want watery chickpea salad!
  • Add mayo & mustard and stir.
  • Fold in pickles and sunflower seeds.
  • Season with salt, pepper and lemon juice to taste. Stir until incorporates.
  • Top your bread slice with a heaping scoop of chickpea salad, top with tomatoes, red onion and lettuce. You can add avocado too for an extra special treat!
  • Enjoy!


  • I prefer pickles in mine as I am not really a relish girl. However, if you want to relish it up I would recommend about 2-3 tbsp. of relish in this recipe.
  • If you want to keep this oil free you can replace the vegan mayo with smashed avocado.
