This Andouille Spiced Roasted Chickpea Sandwich is one of my favorite sandwiches to eat.  I used many of the spices that are used in Spicy Andouille Sausage.  Garlic, fennel, and smoked paprika for that smokey taste.  It’s delicious and hearty!

Using good bread is key for making amazing sandwiches, so make sure you use a good quality loaf.  I bought some freshly baked multigrain bread from my farmers market which completely elevated the taste.  Give this recipe a try!

Do you like chickpeas?  What’s your favorite way to eat them?  I love using chickpeas in Indian spiced curries ❤️ ❤️ !!

 

Health Benefits Of These Meals:

Lemon, Ginger, Carrot Smoothie: Ginger is a powerful medicine that just might inhibit ovarian and prostate cancer cell growth.   Here are two more articles  discussing the various benefits of ginger, and one more study!  Here is a study showing that citrus species, including lemon, are noticeably beneficial fruits for consumption daily both for their nutrients contents and multiple active metabolites.  Consumption of citrus fruit or juice is found to be inversely associated with several diseases. The health benefits of citrus fruit have mainly been attributed to the presence of bioactive compounds, such as phenolics, vitamin C, and carotenoids.” 

Andouille Spiced Chickpea Sandwich:  Chickpeas have been shown to help  balance unhealthy cholesterol levels, to reduce hypertension, and to protect against heart disease in multiple ways.

Andouille Spiced Chickpea Sandwich

Author:
Recipe type: Lunch
Serves: Makes About 3 Sandwiches
Ingredients
  • 2 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon italian seasoning
  • salt to taste
  • 2 cups freshly cooked chickpeas, or canned (drained and rinsed)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • bread slices
  • ½ cup vegan mayonnaise (my recipe or store-bought)
  • sliced tomatoes
  • a few romain lettuce leaves
  • a few slices red onion
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. In a mixing bowl add the fennel, garlic powder, smoked paprika, onion powder, italian seasoning, salt, chickpeas, and olive oil. Mix well and place on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes and remove from the oven.
  4. To assemble, add your desired amount of vegan mayo to the bread slices. I like to add the romaine lettuce next. I make the romaine lettuce leaf face up (the curve goes up kind of like a little lettuce cup). This allows me to add the chickpeas next so the lettuce can hold them in and the chickpeas won't fall out as much. This ensures the sandwich will be a little less messy.
  5. Top with tomato and onion and the other slice of bread. Enjoy.

Lemon Ginger Carrot Smoothie
 
Prep time
Total time
 
Author:
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 1-2
Ingredients
  • 3 large carrots, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger
  • ¼ inch lemon slice
  • 2 cups pineapple juice
Instructions
  1. Blend everything together until smooth. Add water to adjust the sweetness and consistency, if desired.
Notes
Lemon peel and pith have many health benefits so I like to blend whole slices of lemons in my smoothies. If your blender is not strong enough to blend lemon with the peel attached to it then I would use the juice of 1 or 2 lemons (taste to see how many you want to use).

    These recipes look terrific. I love chickpeas – I mostly have them in hummus – but I would love to try this recipe because I like the andouille flavors. I might try them as a dish on their own with a salad. Beautiful pics – making me hungry!

    I’ve never had chickpeas in a sandwich before, only in a salad! But I’ve had hummus on a sandwich. Is there some benefit to eating the chickpea whole instead of hummus?

      No, eating them either way is fine! I love using hummus on sandwiches too. I actually have a recipe on this website for a Roasted Veggie and Hummus sandwich!

    I am glad you shared this. I currently drink two smoothies a day and only eat one meal. With this being the case I am already excited to try new smoothies. I’ll definitely give this a try in the next few days or so.
