This tastes great spread on fresh crusty bread or in a sandwich. Experiment with different ingredients depending on your taste. I have made this vegan as well by substituting the mayonnaise with soy mayonnaise.

  • 400g can chick peas, drained and mashed
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon hot English mustard
  • 1 tablespoon sweet pickles

Used different ingredients. I was told, "I wish you luck, he won't eat that." Absolutely amazing, my visitors couldn't get enough. I didn't have all the ingredients, so replaced the spring onion with a red onion, pickles with a shot of italian salad dressing and blended. Perfect - 11 Aug 2009


Used different ingredients. Wow, I was very impressed with this! hit the spot. I didn't rinse the chickpeas (reserved a lot of the flavour, I think) and I mashed them with a potato masher. Instead of using regular mayo, I used vegan soy mayo--has 35 calories instead of 100 like regular mayo. tasted great! I think a little celery and cumin would also taste good in there. Will try that next time. And there will definitely be a next time! Thanks Carole! ;-) - 08 Oct 2008


Something else. Amazing! I have been vegetarian for almost nine years, and tuna sandwiches and burgers are the only things I have missed. Well, this recipe has answered my tuna cravings. I made a number of taste changes, though....added much more mayo, red onion, pepper, powdered mustard to taste and the secret ingredient - sea salt. I tried it on crackers for a taste test, then refrigerated and made a tuna sandwich the following day. Yum! Who needs to eat a real fish? Thanks for the great idea! - 08 Oct 2008
