Coronation chickpea toast or sandwich

Coronation chickpeas are a classic recipe gone-vegetarian. A delicious combination of tender chickpeas and a creamy, tangy and mildly spiced dressing. The chickpeas are coated in a luscious mixture of creme fraiche, turmeric, curry powder and a hint of sweetness from mango chutney. The addition of chopped spring onion adds a burst of freshness and texture. Coronation Chickpeas can be enjoyed as a filling for wraps and sandwiches or simply on toast. 


  • 300g cooked chickpeas. I used Bold Bean Co jarred ones.
  • 3 chopped spring onions
  • a heaped dessert spoon of full fat creme fraiche or greek yoghurt
  • sea salt to taste
  • a dessert spoon of good quality mango chutney – I used Geeta’s premium
  • a heaped teaspoon of mild curry powder. half a teaspoon of dried turmeric
  • a squeeze of fresh lemon
  • a few sultanas or raisins – optional

Just mix it all together (you can slighltly smush the chickpeas if you like, it’s up to you) and pile it onto hot sourdough toast or into a sandwich or wrap. For the latter you can add lettuce. Sprinkle on a touch more turmeric and some odds and ends of the green parts of the spring onions – make it look gorgeous!
