Smashed Chickpea and Pesto Baguette
Serves 4
Eating a good sandwich is like watching John Munch fight crime in early Law and Order: SVU episodes: pretty much as good as it gets. Although I find deep comfort in a simple avocado and Vegemite toastie, sometimes I just need a little more oomph. My smashed chickpea blend is filling, protein packed, meaty and god damn delicious. You can mix up your other fillings, but pesto makes for a lovely accompaniment. Planetbox.com sent me the lovely lunchbox in this picture, which came with the cutest magnets that can be personalised! Pictured is the Shuttle box, which is non-toxic and great for school lunches. Get packing!
