Looking for healthy and easy lunch recipes? This curried chickpea salad sandwich is essentially a vegetarian chicken salad using chickpeas instead.


  • 15-ounce can chickpeas (or 1 1/2 cooked)
  • 4 green onions
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise, vegan mayonnaise, or cashew cream
  • 1/2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon honey or maple syrup (optional)
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup chopped cashews


  1. Drain and rinse the chickpeas; place them in a bowl and mash them a bit with a potato masher or fork until they break down in consistency. Thinly slice the green onions.
  2. Add the mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice, curry powder, kosher salt, and honey or maple syrup.
  3. When ready to serve, add the raisins and add chopped cashews. Serve on crackers, or in a sandwich or wrap.
