Calories: 478kcal
Ingredients
For the ranch dressing:
  • 1/4 cup(s) vegan mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoon(s) apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) dried chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) dried dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) garlic powder
for the sandwiches:
  • 1 19oz can(s) chickpeas (2 cups) drained and rinsed
  • 2 rib(s) celery chopped
  • 1/4 cup(s) red onion chopped
  • 2 tablespoon(s) cilantro chopped (optional)
  • 4 romaine lettuce leaves
  • 8 slice(s) bread (Gluten-free if preferred) (or 4 wraps)
Instructions
  • Add all of the ranch dressing ingredients to a medium bowl and mix together. 
  • Now add the chickpeas and use a potato masher or fork to mash to preferred texture. I like about 1/2 the chickpeas mashed and leave the other 1/2 whole. Add in the celery, red onion and cilantro, and stir to combine. Layer onto bread with lettuce. Enjoy!
Notes
Make ahead: The chickpea filling stores well in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 2 - 3 days.
Oil-free: for oil-free sub vegan mayonnaise for vegan yogurt or for mashed avocado. If using avocado it will be a bit green :)
