Chickpea Salad (Mock Tuna Salad)

Enjoy this deliciously light and tasty chickpea salad in lieu of tuna. Better for you. Better for the tuna. Great on your choice of bread or even on top of a green salad. Healthy beans, greens, and whole grains!

What You Need: 1 can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed 2 stalks of celery (or more . . . to your liking) 2 spring onions, white part only 3 small dill pickles (or relish, which you won't need to pulse) 1 tbsp nutritional yeast 3 tbsp vegan mayonnaise 1 tsp onion powder or flakes 1 tbsp horseradish (optional, if you like spicy stuff!) 1/2 tsp celery salt (optional) 2 tsp Bragg's Liquid Aminos (optional) 1 tsp Tumeric (optional) 1 tsp cayenne, or other pepper (optional . . . I like a lot of spice!) What You Do: Pulse the chickpeas in a food mixer until flaky. Transfer to a bowl. Pulse the celery, spring onion and dill pickles until finely minced, add to the bowl and stir in all the other ingredients. Done! Easy schmeasy!! Make a sandwich with your preferred whole grain bread, or pita, or wrap . . . OR, serve with yummy crackers, OR on celery stalks, OR cucumber slices . . . . so many ways to enjoy this! :)
