Curried Chickpea Salad Sandwich

2014-02-25 14.13.49
Inspired by the super easy and fast Greek Yogurt Chickpea Salad Sandwich I made recently, along with a recipe I saw on The Simple Veganista, I made this for lunch.

Ingredients

Makes 2 pita sandwiches

  • 1 14oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 4 green onions, diced
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 6 tablespoons plain greek yogurt (use hummus to make vegan)
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • black pepper, to taste
  • few leaves of lettuce, to serve
  • one piece of pita bread, cut in half

I think that the best thing about this recipe (aside from how fast you can throw it together) is how flexible it is: replace the cranberries with another dried fruit (raisins? apricots?); throw in some red onion or bell pepper; add shredded carrots, apple slices, nuts, feta cheese, etc.

Directions

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients (chickpeas, green onions, cranberries, greek yogurt, onion powder, cayenne, curry powder, pepper). Stir until well combined.
  2. If you’d prefer it as a salad (gluten free!), go ahead and eat it as is. I divided it in half, scooped the salad into two pita halves, and served with lettuce.
