This simple recipe is made with every day pantry items including mayo, chickpeas and buffalo sauce. Great for sandwiches, wraps and phyllo cups. Can be served with chips or crackers, too.
Ingredients
  • 2 C cooked chickpeas (I used canned - rinsed)
  • ¼ C diced celery
  • ¼ C mayonnaise (veganaise for vegan version)
  • 2 tbsp buffalo wing sauce, plus more for garnish (use vegan for vegan version)
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • Chopped fresh cilantro for garnish
Instructions
  1. Prepare the chickpeas. Place ⅓ of the chickpeas in a mixing bowl and mash them. Add the remaining chickpeas to the mixing bowl and stir to combine with the mashed chickpeas.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients (minus the cilantro) to the mixing bowl and mix well.
  3. Pour the mixture into a serving bowl and garnish with fresh chopped cilantro and drizzle with extra buffalo sauce, if desired.
