Ingredients

  • (2) 15oz cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained (or 3 cups cooked chickpeas)
  • 1 shredded carrot
  • 2 stalks celery, finely diced
  • 1/2 small red onion, finely diced

  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • optional: extras like mustard, dill, etc

Instructions

  1. Roughly mash the chickpeas in a medium size bowl. I like to leave some chunks of the peas in the mash.
  2. Add the carrot, celery, onion, salt and pepper and mix well with a fork
  3. Add mayo to desired texture of creaminess (I find tastes really vary in this regard)
