I love chickpeas a lot. What could one not love? Chickpeas are a very adaptable legume that can be used in both savory and sweet dishes and have a satisfying amount of protein.

About Smashed Chickpea High Protein Salad Toasts Recipe

First of all, I appreciate how quick this recipe for chickpea salad is to prepare. Since I don’t like to spend a lot of time making sandwiches every day, as I already explained, the fact that this one comes together so rapidly is perfect for me. We need black small chickpeas for the salad here.

Added justification? It’s so adaptable! It doesn’t have to be the *exact* same recipe every time, which keeps it interesting and I frequently just use whatever vegetables I have in my fridge that I think would go well with it!

I adore the chickpeas’ protein and starch, which really aid in emulsifying everything and contribute to their really delicious texture.

If you’re a vegetarian or vegan then this might be missing tuna, try this as a terrific substitute. Since vegan mayonnaise is my all-time favorite condiment, I incorporated it into this dish. If that makes sense, it adds creaminess to this dish without making it feel like you’re eating a tonne of it.

Important Suggestions To Keep In Mind

  • You should begin by draining and rinsing your chickpeas (if desired)!
  • If you are running behind, you can leave them intact – but the flavors you get from mashing them are irresistible!
  • The chickpeas should be placed in a large bowl, then mashed with a fork or potato masher until the desired consistency is achieved.
  • The time has come for tasting! You can add more vegan mayo or vegan greek yogurt if you think it needs more creaminess! Do you want more zing? (Optional) Add more vegan mustard! Are you not getting enough salt? Be sure to add salt! Tasting and adjusting are always encouraged 🙂.
  • This chickpea salad really needs something HEARTY to hold up. It would be best to serve this salad with a slice of good sourdough bread.

Storage Suggestion

To store leftovers for up to three days in the refrigerator, just put them in Tupperware container with tight-fitting lid. 
In order to truly help brighten up leftovers, you might need to add squeeze of fresh lemon, dollop of vegan mayo, or dollop of green yogurt, but it’s still wonderful! Simply add some freshly toasted bread on top.
