Summer is my favorite time of the year. Feeling the sun on your skin, the smell of freshly cut grass and finally getting off that treadmill and pounding actual pavement … what’s not to love? Another reason I love summer is because since my school-work load is a lot lighter it gives me MUCH more time to experiment with food.
One of my favorite concoctions that I have whipped up is my “Chick Pea Salad Sandwich”. Don’t write this one off of your list quite yet, meat lovers! Although it is a vegetarian sandwich, it is anything but boring!
Here is how to make it:
- ¼ – ½ cup chick peas
- 2 tbsp plain greek yogurt
- Any spices you like! (I am a fan of Trader Joe’s 21 Seasoning Salute or just plain mustard)
All you have to do is mash up the chick peas with a fork and mix it with the greek yogurt. Then, you can add in your seasonings, salt, pepper or whatever you heart desires.
I usually take a whole wheat flat-out wrap and fill it with some spinach before scooping on the chick pea salad. You can eat them like that or grill them if you want a hot sandwich.
Delicious, healthy, and cheap! 1 can of chick peas is about $1, and so if the greek yogurt. Since you only use about ¼ of each the total comes to about 50 cents per serving… Good deal, right?
Chick peas are a great source of protein and fiber, so eat up!!
