SMASHED CHANNA & CHUTNEY SANDWICHES ft D All Starz
Joel makes his twist on the traditional channa and cheese combo with True Bread to take for D All Starz Band.
6 – 8 slices TRUE Bread (white, multi-seed or wheat)
1 can channa/chickpeas drained and rinsed
½ small red onion, diced
1 small sweet pepper, seeded and diced
3 tbsp tamarind chutney
1½ tbsp lime juice
Salt and black pepper
1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme or shadon beni
Few dashes pepper sauce
Cheddar cheese slices
Avocado slices, optional
- Lightly toast the slices of True Bread.
- Place the channa in a food processor. Pulse just until the channa is crushed but still chunky. Remove and place in a bowl.
- Add the remaining ingredients (up to pepper sauce) and mix well. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.
- Assemble the sandwiches. Spread some of the channa mixture on one slice of True Bread. Op with a couple slices of cheese followed by some avocado slices. Top with another slice of bread. Cut the sandwich in half diagonally and serve.
