Chic(ken)pea Salad

I bought some dried chickpeas and I had to figure out something to do with them that wasn't hummus.  I am over hummus. To get them ready for whatever evil plan I had for them, I first soaked the dried chickpeas overnight with kombu (a seaweed, it helps break down their enzymes).  Then boiled and drained them. I decided to make  a faux chicken/tuna salad. I mashed them slightly with the handblender with:

  •  mayo- not too much, gross
  •  fish sauce, chung king vinegar - to get it tasting meat like 
  • garlic powder
  • curry powder, ground dill, and chili powder - to get the flavors I like in chicken salad
  • then add cut up sugar snap pea because I didn't have celery
I put it on toasted bread with some kale. Delicious, healthy, cheap.
