Total time
This Chickpea Pimento Salad is a great source of plant-based protein, full of flavor, savory, colorful, and non-vegan approved! It is great as a dip or on a sandwich or burger.
Recipe type: Appetizer
Serves: 6
  • 2 cans chickpeas
  • 3 Tbsp Mayo (recipe here)
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • ¾ cup roasted red peppers, chopped (you can use freshly roasted or from a jar), OR you can use regular pimentos
  • 1 Tbsp grated white or yellow onion
  • 3 Tbsp nutritional yeast seasoning
  • ½ Tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  1. Drain chickpeas and mash until all chickpeas are squished.
  2. Add the mayo, lemon juice, grated onion, and all spices. Mix the ingredients well. I use the back of a large spoon to almost "cream" the mixture as much as possible.
  3. Next, add in the chopped roasted red peppers and gently mix them in.
  4. Serve dip with crackers, chips, on a sandwich or burger, or whatever other creative way you desire!
  5. Enjoy :D
This dip will stay good in the fridge for 5-7 days.
