Coronation Chickpea Sandwich

Coronation Chickpea Sandwich

This Coronation Chickpea Sandwich lets you enjoy all the flavours of traditional Coronation Chicken but as a vegan version.

Serves 4-6

  • 1 x 400g tinned chickpeas, drained
  • 1 red onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 tsp mild curry powder
  • 115g (4oz) vegan mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 40g (1.4 oz) sultanas, soaked in hot water for 10 minutes and drained
  • 1 tbsp mango chutney
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

To serve:

  • 8-12 slices fresh, crusty bread
  • Lettuce leaves
  • Sliced red onion


  1. 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.
  2. Once cooled, lightly mash the chickpeas so that some still remain whole. Stir in the mango chutney, mayonnaise and season to taste.
  3. Spread the mixture liberally over the bread, adding lettuce and onion. Serve immediately.
