VeganMoFo: Chickpea Salad Sandwich

Okay, okay, so I haven't quite kept up with my end of the VeganMoFo bargain, so to speak. Posting every, single, day was a pretty lofty goal (especially since I'm already 3 posts shy of blogging more during this month than I did during all of 2009 or 2010!). Plus, that whole MoFo schedule thing, well... it kinda went out the window, too!

Thus, I'm back at square one, in a way.

In my case, that means blogging about what ever inspires me when I finally sit down at 2:30am (with a cup of tea) to write for Veggie Terrain. It also means more recipes - hopefully - and more sporadic posting - sadly. That's just the way this blog is run, my dears.

So, please enjoy my super-simple, easy-to-prepare, lip-smakingly-tasty, chickpea salad sandwich recipe. I'm off to catch up on the millions of brilliant VeganMoFo posts that I've been missing...
