chickpea chick’n/tuna salad

Chickpeas can make a great replacement for chicken or tuna in this easy cold salad. Loaded with protein, chickpeas can offer 20grams of protein in 1/2cup serving! I can’t get enough of this as a topping for a green salad or a side or main dish for meals. Also makes a great sandwich filling.

 

Ingredients:

1-2 15oz cans of chickpeas, drained and rinsed (or use fresh soaked chickpeas like the ones from Bob’s Red Mill!

2-3 stalks of celery, finely chopped

2-3 TBSP vegan mayonaise

1-2 TBSP dijon mustard

1/4 chopped red onion (optional)

1-2 TBSP chopped fresh dill (optional)

pinch of chile powder or curry powder (optional)

salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Mash drained chickpeas with a potato masher or in a food processor until roughly chopped and no whole chickpeas remain.

Stir in remaining ingredients and enjoy!
