Save Trees. Print Less. But if you must, we charge $2.99 to encourage less waste


  • 3 cans chickpeas – rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup small diced red onion
  • 1/2 cup small diced celery
  • 1 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning
  • juice of 1 lemon (about 2-3 tablespoons or more to taste)
  • 3-4 tablespoons vegan mayo (or more to taste)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Additional add ins to consider: capers, pickles, apple chunks


  1. Add the chickpeas to a large bowl. Using a potato masher or the back of a fork, smash the chickpeas until you get a coarse mixture. You don’t want them all smashed completely, but we do want them smashed enough that they begin to stick together.
  2. Add in the rest of your ingredients and mix well until combined
  3. Serve in a sandwich, with crackers, in lettuce wraps, or whatever you desire!
