Baharat spiced sauce:

  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • ½ tsp baharat spice blend
  • ½ tsp chilli flakes optional
  • 1 tsp dried thyme

For the filling:

  • 200 g or a (400g, 14oz), chickpea tin drained and rinsed

  • 1 large avocado peeled, de-stoned and finely cubed
  • 2 spring onions scallions, finely chopped

For the sandwich:

  • 4 slices of bread or 8 if you want to make a closed sandwich


First make the baharat sauce:

  • Mix all the ingredients together except the cumin seeds.
  • Heat a frying pan on medium heat and add in the cumin seeds and toast them until fragrant.
  • Add in the baharat mix and stir for approximately 1 min and then remove from the heat and let cool. Try not to have a foodgasm at this moment as this smells soooooooo good.

Make the sandwich filling:

  • Now combine all the ingredients for the filling together and pour over the baharat sauce and mix till everything is coated in the sauce.
  • Chill for a few hours so that the flavours really meld together.

Make the sandwiches:

  • Layer the sandwiches starting with a slice of bread, then the filling, and the second slice of bread if using.
