This is one of our all-time FAVORITE Chickpea Recipes!


This is also a great recipe to highlight during our EAT MORE LEGUMES Challenge.

Challenge found HERE


1 can 15 oz Chickpeas/garbonzos, drained

2 celery ribs, diced

1/4 red onion, diced

2 TBS mayo (veganaise works great!)

2 TBS mustard (dijon is our favorite!)

1-2 teaspoons dried DILL or FRESH Dill, chopped

Dill Pickles, diced (optional)

Salt to taste


Mash the Chickpeas in a medium sized bowl using a potato masher or fork.

You can also pulse them in a food processor.

Combine all of the ingredients and mix well.

There are so many ways to serve this fabulous salad!

You can use it as a vegetable dip.  It works awesome with cut up celery sticks!

You can eat it on top of a RICE CAKE!

You can use it for incredible LETTUCE WRAPS!

And of course- it makes a GREAT sandwich!
