Recipe For 'Wichcraft Chopped Chickpeas and Roasted Red Pepper Sandwich

'Wich of the Week: Chickpeas and Red Peppers at 'Wichcraft

When it comes to expensive sandwiches, I'm rarely disappointed with 'Wichcraft. Though the creations are somewhat pricey, they're also well-made, and when the ingredients are surprising, I'll totally shell out the cash. Though now that 'Wichcraft's Tom Colicchio and Sisha Ortuzar have released a cookbook, I can save my money and make the recipes at home. Lucky for you, I just got my hands on the cookbook, and I have the recipe for the latest 'wich I grabbed at 'Wichcraft: the reasonably priced ($6.95) chopped chickpeas with roasted red peppers, black olives, lemon confit, and parsley on country bread. Though I love the anchovy and egg sandwich with a consuming passion, I decided to try something new on my last trip, and I wasn't disappointed. To find out how to make it,

The country bread that 'Wichcraft uses is just perfect: crusty on the outside but with a soft, friendly give. I thought "chopped chickpeas" would just mean hummus, so I was pleasantly surprised by this spread, which is really more of a chickpea salad. Though making the chickpeas and lemon confit from scratch sounds like a lot of trouble, it could also be done far in advance, and the sandwich itself is quite simple.

ohhh ok that makes it more difficult thanks for explaining it tlsgirl. I think I would love it with just regular chickpeas with some lemon squeezed on them...

Bread is my lover and my enemy....that looks soooo good. Btw you can get chickpeas in a can already cooked and they taste great! So why would it be hard to prepare them?

All I can think when I look at that sandwich is "wow, I'd never be able to fit that in my mouth." The roll is huge!
