      what a super idea / recipe! i am on a very tight budget and my time to make myself healthy food that is satisfying is even tighter. i can have this sandwhich made in under ten minutes and eaten before my 2 yr old daughter wakes from her nap!!! although i respect vegans, i am not one so i made some subs. used all organic ingredients; i used regular mayo and added a dash of lemon juice. sea salt; black pepper and left out the pickles. threw on a slice of tomatoe and it was delicious! this sandwhich has so many variations you could do to it also; i could see adding a slice of bacon (or fake bacon for vegans), maybe some roasted peppers rather than the relish, or even making it open faced then putting a bit of your favorite cheese on top and then sticking it under the broiler. thanks so much for sharing this recipe. i finally can eat lunch quickly, healthily, and feel satisfied!

      I enjoyed this sandwich very much. I used sprouted chickpeas and scaled the recipe back for one sandwich, using 12 grain bread. Thanks!
