chickpea salad sammich!i feel like i should introduce myself; *clears throat* ahem* hi, my name is gwern and i...okay okay, that's just too corny.
i've been wanting to join this cook-a-long since it started but i only had a lousy webcam to document stuff with. now i have a great camera (although the photography leaves a lot to be desired; i'm a little rusty hehe..). i thought for sure my first post would be the pumpkin pie but there is no silken tofu to be found for miles around (it's like all the beef ranchers around here scooped it up or suh'in. i dunno). aaaaaanyway, sandwiches it is! (please bear with me while i figure out this whole blogger thingy) test. test.
believe it or not, i've never actually looked at a proper recipe for this, i just kept hearing about them and decided to make it up according to my taste. i can't imagine that any recipe would be any more complicated than mine though. i also very rarely measure anything so i hope if any of y'all attempt this, it will work! (or you could just go google one) hee.
without further ado i bring you
chickpea salad, gwern-style:
2 cups of cooked chickpeas (i used canned for this, easy peasy)
scant 1/4 cup of vegenaise (or more or less, i used two heaping soup spoonfuls)
1 T. prepared mustard
1 -2 t. dried dill
salt and pepper
step 1. mash chickpeas until desired consistency (i like it fairly mashed with only a few lumps):
add the mayo and mustard:
lotsa fresh ground pepper and salt:
don't forget the dill!
i prefer toasted bread but it's good in a wrap or openface or whatever you prefer. and those pickles are just for show because i don't like garlic dill pickles and that's all i had... ;) but it looks purty:
i think this is bloody delicious as is, but the boy's asked me to put in some relish next time and chopped olives (he's an olive addict), but i say "blehgh" to olives. ew. ew. ew.
