    Why to make ‘Chickpeas (Sprouts) Basil Vegan Sandwich’:

    Sprouts, the most healthiest form of any beans / legumes / lentils when compared to them alone.

    I had already made a blog post about the excellent health benefits of sprouts, how to make sprouts, how to cook them ( Recipe Link with step wise pics⇒ Sprouts )

    Actually,  wanted to make something quick and easy yet filling meal, which has carbs, protein, calcium, greens and veggies.

    So here I made these yummy sandwiches that have sprouts (for protein), basil (for greens), cheese (for calcium) , potatoes (for carbs), and of course, bread for wholesome benefits.

    Step wise pics Procedure for ‘Chickpeas Sprouts – Basil Sandwich’:

    Prep Work:

    Boiling Chickpeas & Potatoes on Stove Top:

    Chickpea Sprouts and Potatoes (peeled) boiled in a stove top closed vessel for 20 mins on high flame. Or stove top pressure cooker for 5 whistles.

    Boiling Chickpeas & Potatoes in Instant Pot:

    Prepare Sandwich Filling:

    Add all these into a wide mixing bowl>> mashed chickpeas, mashed potatoes, chopped ginger, chopped onions, chopped green chillies, chopped basil, chopped mint, salt, red chilli powder, masala powder, turmeric powder, cheese. Mix everything.

    Adding the Filling:

    Take the bread slices, apply a layer of butter. Add a tablespoon of stuffing on each slice and spread it throughout. Now, add enough grated cheese on each slice.

    To Grill the Sandwich:

    In an Electric Sandwich Maker: Brush the electric sandwich maker with butter. Place the bread slices (one above another). Switch ON the gadget, toast until done.
    Put the grill pan on stove under high flame. Smear it with butter, place the bread slice (one above another) grill on each side for 3-4 mins.

    Tips:

    • Adjust the salt and spice as per your taste.
    • You can use any other bread of your choice. I used Wholemeal Bread in this recipe.
    • You can even avoid the potatoes in the recipe, to make it lighter in CARBS! 
    • I have used Vegan Cheese (store bought) for this recipe.
    • Storage: Make the stuffing well before, store it in the fridge and use it whenever needed.

    Result:

    • These, chana / chickpea sprouts – basil sandwich, were completely filling and you wouldn’t feel hungry till the next meal.
    • We had them with tomato ketchup as a dip and fresh fruit platter on the side, so it made a complete meal.
