Heart of palm and smashed chickpeas take the place meat in these vegan lobster rolls. Super easy to make and perfect for summer lunches!
Place the chickpeas into a large mixing bowl and roughly mash them with a fork or potato masher. You want about half of them to be smashed.
Add the heart of palm, celery, mayonnaise, lemon juice, chives, dill, Old Bay, and paprika. Gently stir the mixture until the ingredients are evenly distributed.
Taste-test the mixture and season it with salt and pepper to taste. Adjust any other seasonings to your taste.
Place a medium skillet or grill pan on the stove over medium heat.
Brush the sides of one of the hot dog rolls with butter, covering the entire outer surface with a thin coating, then place the roll in the skillet. Repeat and add another roll (or as many as you can fit in a batch).
Toast the hot dog rolls in batches, toasting each roll for 1 to 2 minutes per side.
Stuff the filling into the buns and serve.
