Chickpea Pesto Sandwiches. Mindblowingly Tasty. Amazingly healthy. And quite easy to make too! 😀

Here’s a sandwich that you should be eating all the time! Seriously!

My verdict? Pretty good for people who appreciate food. But not a big hit among kids. Especially if they’re used to always having a cheese sandwich or a deep fried snack! However, it is a delicious and healthy sandwich! And if you train your palate enough, you’ll start enjoying this like I do!

Chickpea Sandwich – The Recipe

You’ll need-

In a small pan, roast the coriander seeds.

Add it to a blender / food processor

Add the chickpea, a bit of Paneer (optional) & grind for a minute.

Open, add the rest of the ingredients (except the baguette of course)

Grind for 1-2 minutes to form a smooth pesto.

This is you filling! If chilled for 30 minutes, it tastes even better.

Warm your Baguette for a few minutes. Cut open from the middle.

Fill with the Chickpea pesto

Stuff with tomato slices.

Serve!

A note on chickpeas:

  1. If you can’t find the canned garbanzo beans, use the dry beans. Soak the beans overnight & boil in water until the beans are cooked well.
  2. You can use this concept to make any kind of flavor that you like
  3. It may seem odd to not “cook” the filling. But the beauty of the sandwich is it involves no cooking!
