  • Prepare the chickpea tuna salad recipe as directed.
  • Butter one side of four slices of bread.
  • Spread a generous portion of chickpea tuna salad on two slices of bread. Top with 2 cheese slices. Place a bread slice on top, buttered side up.
  • Place a skillet over medium heat. Place the sandwiches on the heated skillet and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until golden brown. Then use a spatula and carefully turn each sandwich, cooking on the other side for another 2 to 3 minutes, until golden brown and the cheese is melting.
  • If the cheese doesn't melt entirely, you can place it in the microwave and heat it for 30 seconds to a minute.
  • Transfer sandwiches to plates and serve immediately.
