Garbanzo Salad Sandwich or "Mock Chickn" Salad Sandwich

Garbanzo Salad Sandwich or "Mock Chickn" Salad Sandwich
Makes 4 sandwiches

Garbanzo beans make a delicious and very nutritious sandwich filling. Bruce likes this with sliced beets (since I added them one day-the beets needed to be eaten). We make ours with sliced tomatoes, sliced beets (the yellow/orange ones) and spinch or lettuce....

1 15-ounce can garbanzo beans, drained
1 stalk celery, finely sliced (I omitted)
1 green onion, finely chopped (I used red onion, about 2 tablespoons)
2 tablespoons Tofu Mayo or other vegan mayonnaise (I make this with the chipotle mayo-see recipe)
1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish
8 slices whole wheat bread
4 lettuce leaves
4 tomato slices

1. Mash garbanzo beans with a fork or potato masher, leaving some chunks. Add sliced celery, chopped onion, Tofu Mayo, and pickle relish.

2. Spread on whole wheat bread and top with lettuce and sliced tomatoes.
