Ingredients

    1 Cup Chickpeas (Garbanzos) cooked according to instructions (or a tin of)
    Big slice of onion, diced into small bits
    2 inch piece of cucumber, with skin on, sliced and diced into small chunks
    1-2-3 tbsp Vegan mayo
    1 tsp fresh lemon juice
    Salt
    Freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Mash the chickpeas with a potato masher - you want this to be lumpy so don't go overboard.
Add the onion and cucumber, give it a mix.
Add the mayo, lemon juice and salt and pepper and Bob's yer uncle!

The mayo, lemon juice and salt and pepper really need to be adjusted to taste and to please yourself.
The nutritional info was calculated on the excessive side, better to be safe than sorry.

  • I made this recipe but replaced the onion and cucumber with cucumber salsa (tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, jalapeno peppers, cilantro) and, not being a vegan, I used fat free mayo. In a whole wheat pita with alittle lettuce for more crunch, AMAZING! Thinks for the recipe! - 6/9/09
