Buffalo Chickpea Salad Melt

Buffalo Chickpea Salad Melt

Ingredients for 5 servings

* Optional Substitution Note

  • 2 cans (30oz/850g) no salt added canned garbanzo beans, drained
  • 2 celery stalks, finely diced
  • 2 green onion stalks, diced
  • 1 large carrot, grated
  • 4 tablespoons vegan mayo
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons The Fit Cook Green Chile Lime blend (Substitute: 2 teaspoons cumin)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons The Fit Cook Everyday blend (Substitute: 2 teaspoons garlic powder + 1 teaspoon onion powder)
  • 4 tablespoons buffalo hot sauce
  • sea salt &  pepper to taste
  • Melt
    • 5 slices sourdough bread
    • 5 slices vegan mozzarella (or your choice of cheese)
    • green onion for garnish


Step 1

Add chickpeas to a large mixing bowl and mash them up using a fork.  This will take significant time.  As a time-saver, use an immersion blender or pulse blend the chickpeas in a food processor or blender until they are ROUGHLY chopped, NOT smooth like hummus.

Step 2

Add in the rest of the ingredients and fold everything together until chunky, yet smooth and well mixed.

Enjoy this with crackers, a side to a salad or as a Buffalo Melt!

Step 3

Toast a slice of sourdough.   Add a serving of chickpea salad.  Add a slice of vegan cheese on top.  Place in the oven to melt the cheese for 3 – 5 minutes, then enjoy!

Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget.
