Creamy Vegan Chickpea Salad

This creamy chickpea salad has the same texture as an egg salad. It can be used to create a very nutritious sandwich or eaten as a side salad. I like to eat in lettuce boats. I garnished the salad with hemp heart toppers, it’s a hemp seed mix.

It comes in different seasonings and is great for topping salads and soups. There is a sweet version too that is good on fruit yogurt or oatmeal. For this salad I used the chipotle onion and garlic variety.
