  • 2 (15.5 ounce) cans chickpeas about 3 3/4 cups
  • 4-5 tablespoons vegan mayonnaise
  • 2-3 teaspoons Dijon mustard plus more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons yellow onion minced
  • 2 tablespoons celery minced
  • 2 tablespoons parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Simmer the chickpeas in liquid from their cans for 10 minutes.

  2. Drain chickpeas in a colander or strainer, then add to bowl and mash.

  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir or mash until combined.

  4. Serve on bread, in lettuce cup, or in pita.

Recipe Notes

  • Vegan: Be sure to use vegan mayonnaise.
  • Simmering: Important as it makes canned chickpeas much softer.
  • Storage: Keep chickpea salad in airtight container in fridge for 3-4 days.
