Chickpeas are a magical food. From hummus to meringue, so many vegan versions of non-vegan recipes require these for proper texture and flavor. These protein-rich legumes make for a great snack or in this case, salad for dipping and sandwiches.
This chickpea delight gains its name from a family joke in which my mother submitted a savory dish dubbed “chickpea delight” to a school cookbook, and it was placed in the dessert section of the cookbook. This chickpea delight is certainly not a dessert, but it will hold its own at any potluck, party, or family meal. Spread it on a sandwich or eat it alone with chips, and it is guaranteed to satisfy.
It is easy to add or take away ingredients of chickpea delight (like bell peppers? add some! not an onion fan? buh-bye onions! don’t like chickpeas? okay, maybe leave that in there, that part is necessary). All you need to make this recipe is a bowl and something to mash your salad!
