Here's an easy sandwich filling that's got plenty of protein and flavor. Some folks (and chickens) say it's a fun alternative to chicken salad.
- cooked chickpeas
- garlic (just a little)
- your favorite mayo (I love Vegenaise)
- your favorite mustard (I love Dijon)
- herbs (dried or fresh, I used dried parsley)
- seasoning (I totally recommend Old Bay Seasoning)
- Drain and rinse chickpeas. Toss in food processor with garlic clove(s). Process so that the chickpeas are just chopped a bit, but not so much that they become like hummus.
- In a bowl, mix chickpeas and everything else. Resist the urge to use a ton of mayo. You really don't need it and too much mayo makes it taste like weird hummus.
- Slap onto bread with your fav garnishes for a sandwich. You can also serve on crackers as an appetizer. (It's super yummy on Herb-Garlic water crackers!) It's also good on a bed of romaine lettuce, but then again, what doesn't taste good on romaine?
What's your favorite way to eat chickpeas?
