RECIPE:  Vegan “Krab” Chickpea Melt Sandwich

INGREDIENTS – Vegan “Krab” Chickpea Salad

  • 1 can chickpeas (garbanzo beans) drained
  • 1/2 c celery, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp mustard
  • 2 Tbsp sweet white miso paste (Miso Master is my favorite)
  • 1/2 tsp Bragg’s Organic Sea Kelp Delight Seasoning
  • 1/2 c vegan mayonnaise (we used Earth Balance)
  • 1/4 c green onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 c sweet pickle, finely chopped (unsweetened relish works too)
  • 1 tsp celery seeds
  • 1 tsp sea salt

DIRECTIONS – Vegan “Krab” Chickpea Salad

  1. In a medium storage-ready bowl, mash the chickpeas with a fork. They all don’t need to be completely mashed, but mostly mashed
  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine the mustard, mayo and miso paste and stir together until well combined
  3. Then add the remaining ingredients to this mayo mixture and stir well
  4. Next, combine the mayo mixture to the mashed chickpeas and stir until everything is all meshed together nicely.  You can place the lid on your container and let the Vegan Tuna Salad ingredients sit together for awhile, or feel free to dive right in.

INGREDIENTS – Vegan “Krab” Chickpea Melt Sandwich

  • Crusty bread, sliced (I used a French Baguette)
  • Fresh tomato, sliced
  • Vegan Provolone cheese slices (Daiya or Follow Your Heart)

DIRECTIONS – Vegan “Krab” Chickpea Melt Sandwich

  1. Prepare the Chickpea “Krab” Chickpea Salad recipe as directed.
  2. Place your oven rack in the highest position and fire up the broiler. Note: I have a toaster oven and was able to use this quite easily for this recipe.
  3. Use a serrated knife to make several slices of the baguette. Another beautiful thing about this recipe is you can make these as you need them. If you’re having several people over, go ahead and slice the entire baguette. If it’s just you for lunch today, cut only a couple. Isn’t that perfect? Place the sliced bread on a baking sheet.
  4. Place a large spoonful of the “Krab” Chickpea Salad on top of the sliced bread, using the back of your spoon to spread it across the bread. Place one slice of tomato over the “Krab” Chickpea Salad.
  5. Place one slice of Daiya Provolone Cheese on top. If you have looked and can’t find this cheese, feel free to substitute with another vegan cheese.
  6. Place the baking sheet in the prepared oven (or toaster oven) and broil until the cheese turns a nice color of golden brown (it should take about 3 – 4 minutes).
  7. Allow to cool slightly before serving.
