Vegan Chickpea Smash Sandwich

Packed with plant protein, fibre and flavour, you can also make this mix and have it with salad or thrown into a stew/soup or in a sandwich. Sandwiches are often demonised as high carb options, but opting for rye gives you a heap of fibre and can keep you energised and full. This Chickpea smash sandwhich recipe is dairy free, and suitable for both Vegetarians and Vegans.


  • In a large bowl, add the drained chickpeas and smash with a fork or masher – it should be the consistency of lumpy hummus.
  • Mix in the chopped red onion, capers, mustard, yoghurt, black pepper, salt and a sprinkle of paprika. And there you have your chickpea smash.
  • Prepare the sandwich – toast some rye/pumpernickel bread and layer with some chopped cabbage, rocket, tomatoes (or any veg you have lying around) and lather on the chickpea smash.
  • Enjoy as an open faced sandwich or double top with two slices.


  • 1 x can of rinsed chickpeas – BPA free ideally
  • 1/4 of a chopped red onion
  • 1 tbsp of capers
  • 1 tbsp mustard
  • 1 tbsp of yoghurt (plant based if dairy free/vegan)
  • Black pepper
  • Sea Salt
  • Ground Paprika
  • Rye/Pumpernickel bread
  • Chopped cabbage, salad, tomatoes etc
