INSTRUCTIONS

1
Prepare the vegetables

Thinly slice the tomato. Thinly slice the cucumber. Peel and mince just half the shallot; thinly slice the remaining half.

2
Make the chickpea tuna

Drain, rinse, and dry the chickpeas and add them to a large bowl. Mash some of them with the back of a fork and then add the minced shallot, Vegenaise, celery seeds, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir the chickpea tuna well.

3
Melt the cheese

Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat with 2 tsp olive oil. Once the oil is hot, scoop the chickpea tuna into two portions, about 1 cup each, and add to the skillet. Sprinkle the chickpea tuna with cheddar cheese, cover the pan, and cook until heated through and melted, about 5 to 7 minutes.

4
Pickle the cabbage and cucumbers

In a large bowl, combine the sliced cucumber, sliced shallot, shredded green cabbage, red wine vinegar, 2 tsp olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Toss the quick pickled cabbage and cucumbers well to coat.

5
Serve

Pop the sourdough bread in the toaster to toast. Carefully transfer the chickpea melts to the toasted bread. Top with the sliced tomatoes. Serve with pickled cabbage and cucumbers.
