Prep Time: 4 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes


  • 1x 400g tin chickpeas, drained
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 red onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 2 tsp mild curry powder
  • 40g (¼ cup) sultanas, soaked in hot water for 10 minutes and drained
  • ½ cup vegan mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp mango chutney
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • To serve:
  • 8-12 slices fresh, crusty bread
  • Lettuce leaves
  • Sliced red onion


  • Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the chickpeas, onions and garlic with some seasoning. Gently cook for a few minutes until the onions begin to soften, before adding the sultanas and curry powder. Continue to cook, stirring, until the spices are fragrant. Leave to cool.
  • Once cooled, lightly mash the chickpeas so that some still remain whole. Stir in the mango chutney, mayonnaise and season to taste.
  • Spread the mixture liberally over the bread, adding lettuce and onion. Serve immediately.
