  • 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.


  • 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.
  • Spread chickpeas onto a slice of bread and top with spinach, sprouts, tomatoes or whatever toppings you have on hand.
