No-Cook Curried Chickpea Salad Sandwich<br><br>
Category: Sandiwches/Burgers<br><br><br><br>
Suitable for a: vegan diet<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Ingredients:<br><br>
------------------------------------------------------<br><br><br><br>
For the Salad:<br><br>
Several Tbsp of your favorite mayonnaise<br><br>
Your favorite curry powder (I recommend Penzey's Sweet Curry Blend)<br><br>
Lemon juice<br><br>
1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed<br><br>
Golden raisins<br><br>
Blanched slivered almonds<br><br>
1 green onion, finely chopped<br><br><br><br>
For the Sandwich:<br><br>
Bread<br><br>
Lettuce<br><br>
Sliced tomato<br><br>
Any sweet fruit chutney (I use Patak's Sweet Mango)<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Instructions:<br><br>
------------------------------------------------------<br><br><br><br>
Mix the curry dressing in a ratio of about 1/4 tsp curry powder per 1 Tbsp mayonnaise. I recommend starting with about 4 Tbsp mayonnaise and one tsp curry powder. Add lemon juice to taste, adjusting seasoning as needed.<br><br><br><br>
Roughly mash the drained, rinsed chickpeas in a bowl. They can still be sort of chunky to resemble the texture of a chicken salad. Stir in as much of the curry dressing as you want. Mix in chopped green onion, raisins and almonds. I've been using a 1-oz snack size box of raisins for 1 can of chickpeas.<br><br><br><br>
Toast some bread; spread with the chutney. Pile on the salad and add lettuce and tomato. Yum!<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Additional comments:<br><br>
------------------------------------------------------<br><br><br><br>
The salad tastes better after a day in the fridge.<br><br><br><br>
BTW, this curry dressing also makes a great dip for steamed artichokes or raw veggies. You can thin it with plain yogurt for a lighter saucier consistency and tangier flavor, or you can make it entirely with yogurt.<br><br><br><br>
If you don't do nuts, you can add sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, chopped celery, or chopped raw carrots instead. But it does need something to give it a little crunch.

Oops, I meant to make sure it said "Curried" in the title so people would know what the flavor is! I edited my post, but I can't edit the thread title.

Thanks! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":up:"> I figured some mod would come along eventually and have pity on me.

Mmm... Tess, this sounds yummy.<br><br><br><br>
Especially since (now that you're back home in Texas) we've been having muggy, miserable high-90's sorts of days where I refuse to cook!

Haha, welcome to a Texas summer! Down here we have that for about 8 months. And the worst part is, it doesn't even cool off that much at night! Thanks goodness for my cool, dark cave-of-an-apartment.

Made this for my husband and son this evening. Left out the mayonnaise (I didn't have time to make any) so I half-blended the mixture with a bit of soy milk instead. I didn't have any almonds either but as they didn't know they were supposed to be there, they didn't complain.<br><br><br><br>
They RAVED about it. Their only complaint was that I didn't make enough. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I made a point of calling it "no-cook" because when I went through the sandwiches forum to see if there was already something like this here, I found a recipe Michael had posted called <a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/showthread.php?t=25471" target="_blank">Curried Chickpea Pita Pockets</a> that involves cooking a chickpea curry and serving it warm in the pitas. I wanted to differentiate this one and make it as clear as possible in the title that it's easy and doesn't involve any application of heat (unless, of course, you want to cook your own chickpeas instead of using canned).
