Drain 1 can of chickpeas, and reserve 3 Tbsp of chickpea can liquid .
Place chickpeas into a wide bowl, and begin to mash them. Add up to 2 Tbsp chickpea can liquid to help the consistency resemble a chunky tuna salad. Set aside.
Prep vegetables: finely chop celery into small pieces, dice red onion, chop cilantro, mince jalapeno pepper. Add them to the mashed chickpeas.
add 1 tsp salt, ½ tsp fresh cracked black pepper, 1 Tbsp chickpea can liquid, olive oil, honey, and two garlic cloves to small blender OR mince garlic and whisk all ingredients together.
Add half the vinaigrette to chickpeas and veggies, mix well and taste. Adjust flavor to your liking with more vinaigrette or salt, pepper, and lime.
Eat as you would tuna salad! Over sliced toast or a tostada.
Chef Kevin loves to eat his with hot sauce and sliced avocado.
