Chickpeas and Cranberries Sandwiches

sandwich with christmas gearSo this is Christmas! Maybe you have some friends or family staying over for the night… Well, this isn’t my case this year, cause I live in a really tiny apartment. Instead, I’ll be at my in-laws place, but maybe I’ll be doing those sandwiches anyway! They are so good and easy! Perfect for a simple Christmas time lunch (the cranberries really add a Christmas feel).

The first time I tried those sandwiches, I could not believe how tasty they were! This recipe, that I took on The simple Veganista, really became one of our go-to recipe, cause most of the ingredients are always in our cupboard. Yep, this recipe isn’t only for Christmas!

Here is what you’ll need :

Ingredients :

Makes 6 servings (you can easily divide the ingredients by two, as I did for the pictures, or keep what’s left in the refrigerator for a few days)

For the sandwiches :

  • 3 cups cooked or 2 cans (15oz) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup celery, diced
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries (or chopped fresh cranberries)
  • 1/2 cup walnuts or pecans, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup scallions (green onions), thinly sliced, white & green parts
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Any kind of bread
  • Lettuce or sprouts (optional)

For the dressing :

  • 6 tbsp (1/3 cup) tahini
  • 4 tbsp (1/4 cup) white wine OR cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 2 tsp pure maple syrup

Directions :

Start by mixing all the dressing ingredients together, until it is homogeneous.

In a medium bowl, roughly mash the chickpeas with a fork or potato masher. Add the celery, cranberries, nuts, scallions, salt and pepper. Also add the dressing, and mix well.

Assemble your sandwiches on any bread you like.
