(Another) Chickpea Salad

My love of chickpeas is no secret to any of you.  I have posted many versions of my favorite lunch, chickpea salad.

Today, I had to scramble to get lunch together... so no surprise, I grabbed some chickpeas, a few veggies and some vegan mayo.

Once the salad was made, I went to grab some bread and lo and behold... not a single slice of bread to be found. What to do what to do? I found the last of a package of flour tortillas- they would have to do.

In fact, they did quite well.

Chickpea Salad

1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 carrot, minced
1 celery stalk, minced
1/2 small red onion, minced
1/4 cup organic canned corn, rinsed and drained
1 heaping tbsp vegan mayo
1 tsp dried thyme
Salt and pepper to taste

Mash the chickpeas with a potato masher or fork until they are chunky but no longer whole. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.

That's it! Delicious, nutritious and really simple!

How do you like to make chickpea salad? I am always looking for a new spin on this favorite dish.


  1. DElicious!! I am going to have to make this for next week. Thanks!

    1. Thanks Noelle! Truly my favorite lunch and I have lots left so it may be dinner too!!!

  2. OMG. I want that right now! Tortilla and all!

  3. I have been making this for a long time... i think that the recipe is on my blog... I just omit the corn and I mash my chicks to make it a bit more homogenous. The texture is terrific and makes a great wrap with a handful of sprouts and a garden fresh sliced tomato! Yummmm!
