Mock "Chicken" Salad
1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained (liquid reserved)
1/4 cup walnuts
1 stalk celery, peeled
2 tablespoons vegan mayo (I use Vegenaise)
4 pita pockets or sandwich bread
lettuce leaves, to serve
1. Use a food processor to lightly process garbanzo beans. I like them to have some intact beans for texture.
2. Process onion, walnuts, and celery to a crumbled consistency. Place all processed ingredients into a bowl and add the vegan mayo, along with some of the left-over liquid from the garbanzo beans.
3. Mix to desired consistency, and place the "chicken" salad into the pita, or onto the bread with lettuce and enjoy.
I just eat this right out of the bowl to save calories! If you want, you can also process peeled apple for a bit of sweet flavor.
