How to Make

Simply mash the chickpeas in a large bowl, stir in the Made With Plants Mayo, cumin, sea salt, cracked pepper and coriander before serving on your favourite Vegan bread with mixed lettuce leaves and sprouts. It really is that easy!

To save time, we recommend using canned chickpeas, however if you have some more time to spare you can use dried chickpeas. To do this you will need to:

  • soak about 1 cup of dried chickpeas overnight
  • rinse the chickpeas under clean water the following day
  • add the chickpeas to a saucepan and top with clean water
  • place the saucepan lid on and bring to a boil, boiling until the chickpeas are soft and tender

Once the chickpeas are tender, simply strain them before following the steps of the recipe.
