Bean Mash

This is one of our family favorite go-to's for snacks or as part of a complete meal.

2 cans of organic garbanzo's drained & rinsed
1 to 1 1/2 c. of finely chopped celery (the more the better in my book)
dried onion or chopped onions to taste ( I use about 1/3 c. dried onions)
dill to taste
organic sweet pickle relish to taste
Vegenaise to moisten

Pulse all ingredients except the celery in the food processor until slightly chunky.  Be careful not to over process.*
Place into a bowl and add in the celery and enough Vegenaise or almond mayo to moisten.

If you want to make it taste like tuna salad, sprinkle it with dulse granules. 

You can use this as a dip, a spread with crackers,  as a wrap on a whole grain tortilla, lettuce roll up, or a sandwich on sprouted bread with lettuce and tomato!
As you can see it is very always use your imagination and change up the beans, spices and or veggies and make it your own. 

*If you prefer a pate or hummus like consistency you can blend it until smooth
