Who would have thought that this would be so delicious. Actually, to me, they were beyond delicious. I *love* hummus which is made from chickpeas/garbanzo beans so I figured that I would probably like this. And I was right! I love being right. LOL.
16 oz can of Garbanzo Beans
2 Stalks of celery (diced)
1 small onion (diced)
2-3 tbsp of Mayonnaise (I used the mayo with olive oil)
1/2 peeled and sliced cucumber
1 small tomato (sliced)
Toasted Bread OR Pita Pockets
A dash of garlic salt
Salt and Pepper to taste
1. Drain can of Garbanzo beans
2. Pour into med size bowl
3. Mash Garbanzo beans (or you can use a food processor to chop them) to where they almost become a paste HOWEVER if you do this by hand they will probably be a bit chunky and that is ok.
4. Mix in mayo, diced celery, onions, garlic salt, salt & pepper.
5. Toast bread
6. Spread on to toasted bread. Add slices of cucumber, tomato and any other vegetables you like (next time I am going to add lettuce).
Did you know that 1/2 cup of garbanzo beans provide 5-7g of protein and fiber. You do however need to check the sodium content of some brands and opt to get the lower sodium beans.
