Being married to a vegetarian makes me get super creative when it comes to mealtime. Since my husband does not consume non-plant-based ingredients, I often use beans as a protein source for him.
Beans are a great way to cut out meat or just to switch things up when it comes to your sandwich. Mashed garbanzo beans are great for re-creating a tuna or chicken salad texture when making wraps or sandwiches. I kept things simple but full of flavor in my chickpea salad and served it over toast with fresh vegetable toppings.
This vegetarian recipe uses mashed chickpeas in place of meat and is served open faced over toast with fresh tomatoes, lettuce and onions.
