Fancy Chickpea Salad

Fancy Chickpea Salad created by duonyte

A cooking show called the Jazzy Vegetarian just started being broadcast in my area and this recipe caught my attention. This can be used as a main dish salad on a bed of greens or as a sandwich spread. Olives or pickles could be used instead of the capers. I thought it made a really tasty sandwich on whole wheat bread.

ingredients

directions

  • Put the chickpeas/garbanzo beans into a medium mixing bowl and mash them up using a potato masher. They should have some texture. (I used 2 cups of homecooked garbanzos, and found that a sturdy fork worked better).
  • Add the celery, parsley, sea salt and cayenne and continue mashing to combine.
  • Stir in the capers and walnuts. (I did not use walnuts, but used scallions and radishes, just to add more crunch).
  • Stir in the vegan mayonnaise 1 tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached.
  • Chill for 2 to 6 hours. Serve as a sandwich spread or serve on a bed of greens, as a main dish luncheon salad.

    Photo may be seen here in Savor: www.annacia.com. Love this! I'm enjoying it as lunch in a bowl. I used fat free thick yogurt, used a large scallion and went with the capers but I do think that green olives would be excellent too. Very quick and easy to make. This is a win-win recipe on all fronts. Made for February Sun and Spice in the North African/Middle East forum.

    DH liked this a little better than I did. The walnuts just did not do it for me, despite my reducing to 1/3 cup. I used regular mayo so it would be vegetarian, not vegan. I added fresh dill (very good addition), dried mustard, and madras curry powder, all of which helped. I also added a couple of large fresh scallions as recommended. I tried adding pickle relish and Dijon to my portion, but it did not add or detract. We served in lavash as sandwiches. Made for Sun and Spice 2013.
