MacChickpea Sandwich

Yes, you’ve read it right: MacChickpea. This sandwich is named after a Big Mac, because my partner came home one day and said: “The sandwich you made for lunch tasted like a Big Mac!”. One of our friends now asked if we could meet up for lunch soon and if I could “bring my Big Mac sandwiches”. And this name was born. This sandwich is SO easy to make and full of goodness. Just make a batch that will serve about 4 sandwiches. You can leave in it in an airtight container in the fridge for about 5-7 days.
