A healthy low-fat alternative to fill your sandwiches. Serve on crusty wholemeal rolls or pita bread with lettuce and tomato. Other raw vegetables can be used instead of celery.
I'm in love with this. I made it last night and let it sit in the fridge for a day, that may have helped. Tonight I warmed some Turkish flatbread in the oven, spread the chickpea filling on it generously, threw some halved cherry tomatoes and thin slices of cucumber on and drizzled with a bit of light yoghurt. Then wrapped it all up burrito-style. After the first bite I thought it was a nice 4 star spread, but it kept tasting better and better with each bite. Now I am finding it hard no to attack the leftovers with a spoon and eat up the whole lot. So good. Wonderful texture, the dill works great (esecially with the salad and yoghurt) and its so healthy. Fingerlicking good. Thanks. - 24 Sep 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My vegetarian sister taught me to make this several years ago. It's a great sandwich filling and also tastes delicious as a filling for stuffed tomatoes (very pretty topped with fresh parsley). I make mine in the food processor and always add a dash of Tabasco to it. We've also made it with Dijon mustard replacing the lemon juice... very versatile and yummy recipe! - 12 Dec 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
WOW!!! This was fantastic!!! I am so glad I finally tried this recipe, because it was perfect for a light summer dinner. I omitted the celery (personal preference) and used less onions. I used fat free mayo, no sugar added relish, and the dill weed and lemon were perfect!! mashing the chickpeas took some time (I tried using a mixer... not the best idea. There were chickpeas firing everywhere!) but it was all well worth it! We used it to fill pitas, along with romaine and tomato slices. Thanks so much for the great recipe!! With 3 vegetarians and 3 non-veg, we all agreeded it was simply amazing!!! My Grandmother didn't even realize it wasn't tuna! - 22 Apr 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
