“Let’s not play this game. Just write your childish Chickpea Salad Sammich post, as difficult as we’re sure it will be, and then maybe we can move on to matters that require a little more brainpower. Like, I don’t know, tying our shoes, or a game of tic-tac-toe, or I know, let’s count to ten*!”
OK, I get it. Why don’t I just put up a recipe for Peanut Butter And Jelly. But, listen.
Not everybody knows! Not EVERYBODY knows that you can mash chickpeas up, just like tuna, and it is fanfreakintabulous. You can throw it on some whole wheat bread with tomato and lettuce and it will taste like childhood, but better. Most people, yes, but not everybody knows. And so I’m here to spread the word. Not to you. Of course YOU are brilliant and you’ve known this forever and maybe you even invented it you’re so freaking smart. But this is for the lost souls in the far corners of the internet. If you don’t know, now you know.
*OMG why is the internet so mean??!
This post is part of my Homemade Mayo series, where I’m highlighting a few basic recipes that call for mayo. However, you can use storebought, if you like!
1/4 cup vegan mayo, homemade or storebought
1 medium carrot, peeled and very finely chopped (almost minced)
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
2 tablespoons onion flakes
Salt and pepper to tasteFor the sammiches:
Whole wheat bread
Extra mayo for a’spreadin
Yum! Just made this!
Just wondering how long this will last in the fridge?
I am a big fan of these on RYE. Mmmmm.
Damn, I hate celery. Bad. Gimme some other ideas for fill? Other than nuts and seeds?
I’m more a Miracle whip girl so add some dill pickles, chopped fine, with a bit of the pickle juice for that acidic zing. Mmm
Amazing recipe!!! I found it in “Isa does it”, what a goodness!! I only opt for a home-made mayo, it’s so simple (1 cup of oil, 1/2 cup of soy milk, salt, garlic, pepper if you want)!
Well I didn’t know, so thank you! lol
This is the Bomb !!
YUM! I had to try this, and it is delicious in a pita pocket with lettuce, tomato, and avocado. I did use fresh chopped onion instead of onion flakes and added turmeric and pickles.
Just tried this for dinner, it was great! I’m not a fan of celery, so in typical Chicago fashion I used diced onion instead and subbed celery salt for the onion flakes. Took some tweaking, but it worked 😀
I guess only the mean people knew about this.
Wait, does that make me one of the mean ones, because I know about it now? Oh man…
NOW I KNOW!

I just went back to being vegan after 5 years as a vegetarian (15 years before that I was a very processed food-vegan, not good) and your Isa Does It was the first cookbook I bought. Been making these ever since, but have left the carrots and celery bigger to get more satisfying crunch. Bodacious and definitely in the rotation for the long haul!
Incredible. Absolutely delicious Thanks
Yummy !! How could i make this bread wholemeal ? (its a stupid question i guess but hey, if you dont ask!)
The recipe I used here is the PPK Chickpea Salad recipe. I have to admit that I kind of miss egg salad sandwiches and this is perfect. I recommend you add a couple of other basics to your meal prep plan: sauces, dressings, and spreads you can use for sandwiches. salad Sammiches and I loved it. For my version, I smashed chickpeas, tossed them with tomatoes, onion, and serrano. I’ve found a ton of chickpea salad recipes on the internet, though I’m not 100% happy with any of them.
If you miss egg salad, I recommend the tofu-dill salad from “Vegan with a Vengeance.” It’s delicious and very quick. I make some whenever I have fresh dill, though in a pinch you can substitute dried (divide volume by 3 is the standard rule for subbing dried herbs for fresh I learned).
Delicious and easy to prepare sandwich recipe. I have used it many times.
I love this recipe. Ive been making it for years!
try it sometime with just diced red onion, mayo and Old Bay, it’s all you need : )
