This is a great appetizer for parties where people can help themselves and eat something that is healthy and fibrous! This is made with organic chickpeas, fresh dill, vegan mayo, dill pickles, apple cider vinegar, honey dijon mustard, salt and pepper topped over some crunchy rice crisps or crackers. You can even pair this with toast which is where this idea was inspired from. I got this recipe idea from Vanilla and Bean and it’s been such a hit in my home.
For this recipe, I’m using Eden Foods chickpeas and make sure to rinse them well. I mean well as chickpeas possess a bit of a unpleasant smell but once you mix it in with all the ingredients, you won’t smell or taste it at all! I’m also using Vegenaise which is vegan mayo.
Well I hope you guys enjoy this recipe! If you make it, please take a picture of it and tag @christieathome on Instagram and it may be featured. If you’re not on Instagram, please share this recipe with your family and friends across social media or by simple word of mouth. I’d appreciate it GREATLY!
Take good care,

DILL SMASHED CHICKPEA OVER RICE CRACKER
YIELDS 40 PIECES | PREP TIME 20 MINS | COOK TIME 0!
Adapted from Vanilla and Bean blog
- 40 rice crackers or rice crisps
- 398 ml can of organic chickpeas
- 1/2 cup of vegan mayo
- 1/4 cup of dill pickles, finely diced
- 1/4 cup of red onion, finely diced
- 1 tsp of apple cider vinegar
- 1 tsp of honey Dijon mustard
- 1/3 cup of fresh dill, finely chopped
- salt and pepper to taste
- Rinse your canned chickpeas several times to remove the odour from the chickpea juice. Strain them.
- In a large mixing bowl, smash your strained chickpeas with a potato masher until mashed to the consistency that you desire. Add in all the remaining ingredients except for the rice crackers. Mash and mix it altogether until well combined. Season with salt and pepper for taste.
- Scoop 1 tsp onto each cracker as needed.
Tip: if you’re serving this at a party I would serve the chickpea mash in a separate bowl and allow guests to scoop onto the rice crackers as the moisture from the filling will cause the crackers to go soggy.
Tip #2: You can also have this filling in a sandwich with some lettuce, tomatoes, whatever you desire.
