Chickpea & Smoked Almond "Tuna" Salad Sandwich

(Makes 6-8 sammies)


I found this recipe in The Thug Kitchen recipe book and tweaked it a little.  That cookbook is so funny!  You should check it out.  Often I tweak recipes to make them simpler and also to suit my taste.  

Instead of making my own smoked almonds as was instructed in The Thug Kitchen cookbook I bought hickory smoked almonds.  I cut the red onion in half and estimated the amount of lemon juice instead of exact.  

I am serving this badas* sandwich up on The "Be The Change" Red River Gorge Adventure trip this weekend.  I've already eaten this twice this week and can't wait to eat it again this coming weeekend!



3 cups cooked chickpeas
1 avocado
1  lemon juiced
1/4 of a red onion chopped
1/3 cup chopped fresh dill
1 rib chopped celery
1 to 2 teaspoons of your favorite hot sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
Ground pepper to taste
Bread, toasted
Lettuce and tomato

Place all ingredients except the bread, lettuce & tomato in a food processor.  Blend until that sh*t is chunky ;)

You can make this ahead, but leave out the avocado.  Spread the avocado on the bread before serving if you do this.

Put sandwich together and enjoy!
