So I blogged a week or so ago about my Vegan Cobb Salad. I know what you were thinking. Great, but what am I going to do with the rest of can of chickpeas? Well I will tell you. It's called "Faux Egg Salad" and it's delicious. And even better, you don't have to dirty a lot of dishes or gadgets.
It's very simple, but very yummy.
1/2 cup canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 T mayo (vegan or regular)
1 T diced pickles
Pinch of salt and pepper
2 slices of great bread (I used pumpernickel)
Nondairy butter (or regular butter) (optional)
Place chickpeas in a small bowl and mash them with a fork.
Add mayo next and continue to mash. You can have it as smooth or lumpy as you like it. The first time I did it, I kept it pretty lumpy, but the next time, I smoothed it out more (I prefer smoother).
Add in the pickles and salt and pepper to taste.
Lightly toast bread and pat with a little butter.
Place chickpea mixture on bread and serve.
This is a great, filling lunch for vegetarians and vegans when you want something with some bulk. I love it!
