The EX

Ryan, my mother, and I decided that we wanted to go to the Exhibition Place. I packed us some nice and healthy lunches! Chickpea salad sandwiches on whole grain bread, and a bowl of fruit (grapes, blackberries and apple slices). Once we got to the transfer point for our streetcar route it started to rain. I checked the forecast on my phone and it said we could expect showers all day. So we decided to just walk home and eat our sandwiches on the corner next to a corner store (haha). It was a great lunch :~) And it hasn't rained yet.

Chickpea salad sandwiches:

  •  1 can chickpeas, washed and drained
  • 1/2 medium vidalia onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cucumber, chopped, keep skin on
  • 1/2 sweet pepper (I used red), chopped
  • 2 tablespoons hummus
  • 1.5 tablespoons tahini
  • 1.5 tablespoons mustart
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 garlic cloves, minced
Cut up the vegetables into chunks that would be easily eaten on a sandwich. Mash the chickpeas. Add to cut vegetables and add the hummus, tahini, mustard and salt & pepper. Mix well and serve on toasted bread with lettuce! Yummmm! I use toasted bread because it gets too soggy on non-toasted bread. Feel free to add any other vegetables, like celery or radishes! I used to make this with vegan mayonaise in place of the hummus and tahini, but found this way better because it cuts out all of the oils and fakeness of the mayo.
This onion was one of the sharpest onions i've ever encountered.
The vegetables are mixed with the mashed chickpeas.
