Chickpea salad sandwich with romaine on home-made bread.

For the chickpea salad I cooked the chickpeas in a pan along with some liquid smoke, coffee, black pepper and garlic powder. I smashed them a bit while cooking and once all liquid was absorbed/dissolved I mixed with Veganaise, dill relish and minced onion.

Note: I also make this without cooking the chickpeas.
