I have a hard time coming up with lunch ideas. I end up eating the same foods over and over until I’m completely sick of them. Lunch is such a neglected meal as far as recipes go. Don’t you think? I recently found this sandwich recipe that seems suspiciously simple, but it is so good! You have to try it. You also have to tell me what your favorite lunch foods are, so I can add more variety to my menu!
1 can chickpeas aka garbanzo beans
1/4 cup green onion, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 teaspoon dried dill
2 tablespoons mayonnaise (to taste)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
Drain and rinse the chickpeas, pour them into a mixing bowl, and squish them with a fork. (If you get tired of squishing don’t worry about getting every last pea. I thought my arm was going to fall off!) Stir in the green onion, celery, dill, mayonnaise, lemon juice, and salt and pepper. If the mixture seems too dry add a bit more lemon juice and/or mayonnaise. Spread the chickpea mixture on bread, fill a pita, or just eat it straight out of the bowl!
