4 Ingredient Pantry Chickpea Salad (Vegan, GF, Power Outage Recipe)

This easy no-cook pantry chickpea salad is my favorite power outage recipe, simple and full of plant protein! Quick, yummy, ready in 5 minutes.
It’s hurricane season here in New England! To prep this year, I’m compiling a list of all my favorite no-cook recipes to make when we don’t have any power in the house. This pantry chickpea salad is a quick go-to lunch that requires no cooking. Just mash and mix ingredients into a bowl, and you have a quick and easy lunch ready in no time.

This Pantry Chickpea Salad Is:

  • Creamy
  • Bright
  • Satisfying
  • Made with just 4 pantry staple ingredients
  • Great for a power outage or when you just don’t feel like cooking
  • Vegan & gluten free
This pantry chickpea salad can be eaten many different ways! If you have bread, it makes a great and easy sandwich. For our last power outage, I went outside and grabbed a few leaves of lettuce from the garden to make a chickpea salad wrap. You can also eat this salad as a dip, and spread it on crackers or scoop into celery. No matter which way you eat it, it’s going to be good!

What’s In This Pantry Chickpea Salad?

  • Canned or cooked chickpeas: I normally like cooking chickpeas from scratch in the Instant Pot, but if I do buy canned always make sure to buy low sodium or no salt added chickpeas. Canned beans can be loaded with sodium normally, so make sure to check the labels.
  • Mayo, vegan or plant based. Just Mayo and Hellman’s have great vegan varieties, you can find them at a your regular grocery store next to the normal mayo.
  • Relish: I like adding relish for a little crunch and acidity. You can use sweet or dill relish, either would be great.
  • Yellow Mustard: the classic condiment, no fancy dijon or whole ground mustard needed.

How Do I Make This Chickpea Salad?

  1. In a mixing bowl, mash the chickpeas with a potato masher or mash the chickpeas against the side of the bowl with a fork.
  2. Add the mayo, sweet relish, and mustard. Stir well to combine all ingredients. I found the seasoning was great and didn’t need any salt or pepper (but feel free to add).
  3. Serve on bread as an open faced sandwich, on lettuce wraps, or with crackers as a tasty spread.
