Mashed chickpeas make a tasty vegan sandwich salad that reminds me of tuna salad. It's especially good in a whole-wheat pita with tomato slices and some lettuce. All the ingredient amounts can be modified to suit your tastes or what you happed to have around.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Mash the chickpeas with a potato masher until the salad becomes somewhat creamy and spreadable.
  3. Add salt and pepper to taste, preferably after refrigerating the salad for a little while to let the flavors meld.

Pretty good! I didn't have any onions on hand and I think that's what I needed most, for that extra something. I did spice it up a bit with some dried dill weed. This was very easy to make and I think I'll be making it again soon. Oh, and this would work really well as road/picnic food!

I made this recipe with fat-free mayonaise. It was excellent--very flavorful with the Dijon mustard and vegetables. I highly recommend it.
