No need to heat up the oven or fire up the grill to make this healthy curry chickpea spread. Spread it on a sandwich and serve with a salad or soup and you’ve got dinner in a matter of minutes.


  • 1 (15 oz.) can chickpeas, drained
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped red onion
  • 4 tablespoons plain yogurt (or vegan mayonnaise to be vegan friendly!)
  • 1 carrot, finely diced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • To serve: buns or sandwich bread, spinach, sprouts, tomatoes, canned red peppers, etc.


  1. Place all the ingredients from chickpeas to black pepper in a bowl and mash with a fork or process for a few pulses in your food processor until it all starts to stick together. You don’t want to mash it smooth into a hummus consistency, aim for an oatmeal texture.
  2. Spread chickpeas onto a slice of bread and top with spinach, sprouts, tomatoes or whatever toppings you have on hand.
