I used to love tuna sandwiches with mayo, diced eggs, onion, salt & black pepper.
Since starting this journey, chickpea sandwiches have been an amazing replacement.
If you need a really simple lunch this week, this sandwich with a fresh fruit and vegetable is perfect. My kids love it! It takes me about 10 minutes to put this meal together. Plus, it's delicious and filling.
Instead of using conventional mayonnaise (who contains eggs), you can use Vegenaise or Just Mayo (my new fave) to replace it. I also found a recipe on Fablunch if you prefer to make a homemade version of mayo.
Because I'm random...
Remember this episode of Martin? The one when Ms. Geri threw his last meal on the floor in the bus station and declared....
Let me know what you think once you try the recipe (full instructions below).

Ingredients (6-8 Sandwiches)
- (2) 15 oz chickpeas, drained & rinsed
- 1/2 cup red onion, chopped

- ½ cup vegan mayo (Just Mayo and Vegenaise are good brands)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- ¼ teaspoon paprika

Grind chickpeas in a food processor for a few seconds (you can also use a potato masher if you don't have a food processor). Transfer to a bowl and mix in all the remaining ingredients. Serve on a bun with lettuce/fresh spinach and tomato.
