Here is my favorite vegan sandwich recipe, from The Peaceful Palate by Jennifer Raymond.
It is listed there as "Dolphin-Friendly Mock Tuna Salad" but I don't think it tastes like tuna and I dislike comparing veggie foods to animal products anyway.

  • 1 15-oz can garbanzo beans
  • 1 stalk celery, finely chopped
  • 1 carrot, grated (optional)
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp. mayonnaise or mustard
  • 1 tbsp sweet pickle relish
  • 1/4 tsp. salt (optional)
Mash the garbanzo beans with a fork or potato masher.
Leave some chunks.
Add the sliced celery, grated carrot, chopped onion, mayonnaise and relish.
Add salt to taste.

Serve on whole wheat bread or in pita bread with lettuce and sliced tomatoes.

Makes 4 sandwiches.
