ULTIMATE CHICKPEA SALAD SANDWICH | easy vegan recipe


yo yo welcome back to another freestyle
Friday every single week we’re gonna cook it my way recipes are free you know
what keep it hot so grab yourself a pen and paper I’ll show you what I got
what’s up guys welcome back to another episode
my name is Eamon I live in this van full time with my beautiful fiance she’s
behind the camera you can’t see her but she is really beautiful you have to take
no we’re not ah thank you doing everything in this little tiny kitchen
when they have a two burner stove water no oven let’s get at it
we got a banger meal for you today this has been requested by many because
you’ve seen it we’re addicted read them like maybe two three times a week it’s
crazy chickpea salad sandwiches now I say
sandwiches but you can make them that’s a wrap you can do them as a panini you
can go crazy you could do this that’s like just a scooper and topper and salad
it possibilities are endless guys let’s get into it we’re gonna do it on a nice
beautiful rye I like to keep mine a little like Mediterranean vibe so
absolutely addictive the sun-dried tomatoes all of garbanzos otherwise
known as chickpeas we’re going to pants dill pickles is a must-read onion now
we’ve got a couple options here we’ll talk about we’re gonna do it with
avocado tomato and I think that be it so maybe some
spices let’s get into it we don’t have any new sponsors on the show so if
today’s show is the one and only chai wallah tyre let’s start with our big
bull you know where I keep it that’s a nifty little strainer you’re always
gonna get a couple stragglers at the bottom a little bit of water over in
sight right out make sure we’re parting you getting a really high-quality masher just mash those down if you have an
actual master that’ll work a fork for work anything you just want to bust up I
like to bust up about 80% no no buddy just crack this no oh good okay so
that’s the consistency we’re looking for now originally when I came up with this
recipe or discovered it got inspired by other people making it a lot of people
were using vegan Mayo which is amazing it’s delicious if you don’t have vegan
Mayo it’s not a big deal we don’t have it today and it’s also a lot healthier
so we’re gonna just do a bow and we’re gonna mash that in there as well easiest
way to get rid of the seed here it’s just commit guys commit you’re not
super confident I wouldn’t recommend that technique but I started you just
flick it off you don’t wanna like grab it and slut ah don’t do that then just
go see ya this is a common mistake that I’ll even find out like some restaurants
and stuff like that it’s the worse situation when you get this little guy
in your guacomole so make sure you just pull that off it’s just little details
they’ll make your life lot easier and then we can just strip this whole thing
throw it right in there start to work that in a little better part I like to
grab some that dill pickle liquid add a bit of liquid in there okay mix
everything around such an easy recipe guys like this we’re done we’re
basically eating chickpeas all sandwiches play now we’re just gonna get
into a little chop chop the way I’m going to do this guy as I just wanted a
section because I don’t need a whole onion but basically I’m just going to
see what I’m doing there I’m just going down to that so I’m leaving that
attached you basically go all the way down but
it’s not coming all the way down because the knife is able that way this thing
stays together just makes your life a lot easier you can play around with that
you’re not mucking around and then this I’m just gonna do really small a lot of
people ask me like why did you get into cooking why you like cooking so much
first of all I love just being able to be creative I think cooking especially
vegan food really forces you to be creative it’s super easy to make a steak
and potato and veg but to cook in a unique way and use ingredients that
complement you know spices and fresh produce and there the possibility rend
‘less but the main reason I got into it is because my mom would make me do the
dishes unless I cook so I was first to make that decision was pretty obvious
okay onions gonna go right in I would say pickles is the most important
ingredient guys but anything else is totally up to you this is my new like
fan favorite of this week but celery is delicious in it you can throw carrot
someone messaged me saying toss an apple in there so like literally the
possibilities are endless this is just a base on the sandwich and
then whatever you have in your kitchen even if you don’t like pickles try
pickles in this because like it’s one thing to just like buy typical Anita but
my aunt hates pickles and we made her this and you can’t even like I’m gonna
cut cut cut cut chop up nice small pieces so it really adds a good crunch
factor the dill works really well with the Alba above the low the bigger ones
I’m going to cut in three and then just little guys I guarantee I might have
some comments being like you’re gonna cut your fingers off but I find this the
most fun way to cut so this is how it I know that to comment you’re gonna cut
your fingers off but in if you add olives I’m also gonna add a little bit
of the olive brine you don’t need to add that refined salt which is cool to add
that little bit saltiness you will need to add maybe a little bit but not as
much the next stop sun-dried tomatoes Kevin said tried sun-dried tomatoes
they’re unreal I don’t understand the flavor where it comes from totally
different to it tomato really likes the chewiness like I could just I could like
have a cologne that smells like sun-dried tomatoes I think it’d be
stoked scissors is gonna be your best friend here go in there with the
scissors dab dab dab dab it up use your two fingers and then just hold and cut
right into the ball you’re gonna use this meals so amazing because we like I
said we have it like two three times a week and you could just change up like
the flavor that you want it right so you can go Mediterranean you could go more
of like a fruity style one and like you just never get sick of it’s super super
versatile also another thing I wanted to mention is because this is kind of a lot
of work for like a quick lunch you could make like three four times this put it
into a fridge you’ll be good for a few days and put into a Tupperware and be
good a few days in the fridge so super easy if you’re doing like lunch prep
okay so now we’re going to mix this around we’re gonna add a little bit of
black pepper and by a little bit I mean quite a bit
just take a spoon here and mix this all up it’s really good it’s like nice and I wanna say that’s all you really need
because you’ve got all that olive sun-dried-tomato adding oil flavor I
don’t need extra flavor one thing I might do actually I might add a little
jalapeno just the liquid I like my chickpea salad sandwich with but the
left for tomato what was that I’m gonna top it with just a nice fresh roma
tomato well I got a huge bone to pick with tomato cutters even even like the
professionals like the marketers I’ve seen the market tomatoes where they cut
it like this and you just looks like an apple has been cut into it you know when
you see an apple cut like that it’s brutal the only way to cut a tomato
slice guys and this is so important and you’ll you’ll just be so happy I told
you this is see the top there is shoot it up from your belly so match match the
top with your belly button that’s the trick to remember ok so just hold it up
there every time you’re gonna cut it tomato just hold it up there take a
photo and tag me and if you like you hold it right there and then put it
right down ok and then wash this the first cut no one really wants so I can
just go to the side but look how much more beautiful that looks
versus I’m not even going to show you because I can’t stand it that that badly
but you know what I mean that could be cut it that way brutal I don’t know if
he’s a roma roma tomatoes I kind of just made that out I think they’re Tomatoes
Tomatoes all right now we’re gonna toast some bread but aimin you don’t have a
toaster how you gonna toast bread great question
friends we’re about to show you we toast our bread just like we make our pancakes
on a pan okay so I’m gonna let that heat up all right I’m gonna also just throw a
little bit of lettuce on there that’s optional as well right it’s nice and
toasted not burnt but I lick it like a bit of a crunch pocket I don’t want a
soggy sandwich you want that as a nice base and that’s why I like rye rye is
like a really earthy chewy bread and it pairs nicely with like the fresh acidity
that’s going on in here I’m gonna start with my bread lettuce is a great way to
prevent SOG slug situation if I had a paper towel I’d probably dry that fully
but I don’t probably throw a few slabs it to met and we’re gonna build these
open-faced now we’re gonna go up like a huge like we’re not cheeping out you see
that consistence these how holds together I love that okay it’s a moist
ound I get the mic right in there you like that guys I’m gonna dust up a
little bit of cayenne because as I said my freestyle route you know I keep it
hot and there you have it kids beautiful Sunday afternoon sandwich in the park
got the kids playing in the background yes the bread is so crisp there’s no SOG
factor I can hold that from the one side there’s no like drooping or anything you
have a crunch let’s have it go Oh man as soon as that Sun Dried tomato

hit me up on Instagram guys that was super fun yesterday I saw a lot of
scones going down okay pancakes a lot of scones a little bit sloppy with the
almond milk stitch I know it was a little freestyle but if you do add a
little bit more almond milk you would get those to kind of go more pancake
