Vegetarian Greek Sandwich Filling

A filling sandwich spread full of nutrients and a great source of protein. A great alternative to tuna (tuna contains the highest levels of mercury of all fish and food sources, see which was once my favorite type of sandwich until I was aware of all the harmful effects, especially for pregnant women, infants, young children, those with neurological disorders, and those with autism.

Yield:  3 Servings

Sandwich Filling


1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed

1 stalk celery, chopped

1 green onion stalk, chopped (may use onion of your choice, onion powder, or as much/little/none at all)

1 tablespoon mayonnaise (to taste or use salad dressing of your choice)

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1/5  teaspoon dried dill weed

salt and pepper to taste


1.Drain and rinse garbanzo beans. Pour garbanzo beans into a medium size mixing bowl and mash with a fork. Mix in celery, onion, mayonnaise (to taste), lemon juice, dill, salt and pepper to taste.

2. Use on whole grain bread, or your favorite pita bread or flatbread. Add plain nonfat Greek yogurt & spoon across bread. Add seasoned salt on top of it. Just a sprinkle on top of the yogurt. Then add the sandwich filling. Fold it & enjoy!
