Chickpea “Tuna” Salad


This is our new take-to-work lunch. It’s great wrapped in pita, with crackers or crudités, or in a sandwich.

Makes 2 cups

2 cups chickpeas

½ cup diced celery

¼ cup diced red onion

1 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons vegenaise

juice of 1 small lemon

salt and pepper to taste

parsley to garnish

1. In a medium-size bowl, combine chickpeas, salt, lemon juice, and vegenaise. With a potato masher, mash ingredients until the individual chickpeas have been broken down and everything is well combined (but not completely mashed together). Add celery and onion and mix until all ingredients are well combined.

2. Finish with salt, pepper, and parsley.
