Sandwiches larger than my head are the only type of sandwiches I eat.
This bad boy is filled to the brim with avocado, beetroot, carrot, greens and mashed chickpea & turmeric goodness.
Filling, nourishing and delicious. My three main pre-requisites for any good lunch on-the-go.
I am sure that you have heard the hype around Turmeric as of late. Well, they ain't wrong! This spice is one of the most powerful natural anti-inflammatories around! Not only that, but it is a leader in the anti-oxidant realm and has been proven to protect you from alzheimers and heart disease. I try to include turmeric into my diet daily and this chickpea smash is my quick & easy go-to! It takes a matter of minutes to prepare and is full of flavour and texture. The perfect sandwich filler!
Lets get to it.
Turmeric Chickpea Smash
1 can chickpeas
1 Tbsp Turmeric
1 tsp crushed Garlic
1 tsp Tahini
1 tsp Olive oil
Salt & Pepper to taste
Drain and rinse your chickpeas.
Simply add all ingredients to a bowl and smash with a fork or potato masher. I like to leave my mash a little lumpy for added texture.
SANDWHICH FILLER IDEAS
Its a sandwich, i'm sure you know the drill. I'll go over the basics just in case.
I used a spiralizer for my carrot and beetroot in order to make the sandwich easy to assemble and eat! However, a grater would work well here too.
Add all your favourite colour-filled vegetables to the sandwich and make sure to put a decent smear of turmeric - chickpea smash in the middle.
