Food Fix Friday: Sandwich Spread...or Filling?

Hi guys! I meant to post this earlier but ended up having to take care of something...and now that I'm posting it I realize I forgot to take a picture of the food. I was really hungry and so was hubby, and I just didn't think to take a picture before clearing my plate.

Vegetarian or Vegan Sandwich Spread/Filling
  • one can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • about 2 Tablespoons mayonnaise or Vegenaise (I tried this and it was pretty tasty, just like mayo!)
  • about 1 Tablespoon lemon juice (fresh or from concentrate)
  • 1 stalk celery, finely chopped
  • about 1/2 or one whole roasted red bell pepper, chopped up (I have a jar of these in my fridge)
  • whatever bread or wrap or pita you want to use the filling in (I used a pita pocket for fun)
  1. Mash up the garbanzo beans - they don't need to be smooth like a paste, just mashed up
  2. Mix in the mayo, lemon juice, celery, red bell, and you can add in salt & pepper too if you want
  3. Fill the pita pocket or spread onto your choice of bread and eat with a huge salad beast!
We ate these with a simple salad of romaine lettuce, avocado, feta cheese, and sesame ginger dressing. It was a very satisfying dinner!

*I didn't really measure out the lemon juice and mayo, just mixed them in to my taste and kept testing it until I liked it. Super easy recipe.
