Using chunks of sweet mango, mashed chickpeas, and garam masala, a spice mixture containing cinnamon, cumin, and black pepper, makes this sandwich decidedly Indian in essence. The pickled tomatoes add a vinegary appeal to each bite. And because of the sky-high fibre levels, the meal will stick with you for much longer.
If you prefer a dairy-free sandwich, the yogurt can be replaced with dairy-free mayonnaise or even plain coconut yogurt.
Pierce each tomato 2 to 3 times with wooden skewer. Place tomatoes and garlic in glass container. In small saucepan, bring vinegar, 3/4 cup (180 mL) water, salt, and sugar to a boil. Simmer until salt and sugar have dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool for 20 minutes. Pour vinegar mixture into container with tomatoes and let sit, covered, for at least 2 hours.
Place chickpeas, yogurt, garam masala, cayenne, and a couple pinches of salt in food processor container and pulse until you have a chunky mixture. Fold in mango, almonds, green onions, and cilantro.
To assemble each sandwich, place some chickpea mixture on naan or bread slice and top with pickled tomatoes and spinach. Serve open-faced if on naan or top with another slice of bread.
