This is such an easy recipe…..seriously. Very quick to throw together if you already have cooked chickpeas. If not, use a can of chickpeas. I like to buy organic bulk dried beans and cook them myself, but sometimes I am not so prepared. That’s why they make canned beans. I love chickpeas for their neutral flavor and because they offer protein, fiber and calcium to your diet. This is my vegan version of tuna salad.
