Instructions
  1. First make cashew cream, add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Add more water if necessary.
  2. Drain and rinse your chickpeas. Use a fork or a potato masher to mash the chickpeas. I like to leave some whole chickpeas.
  3. Add in lemon juice, celery, dijon and peppers, then stir in the cashew cream. Then add herbs, almond and salt and pepper.
  4. Serve in a wrap, sandwich, cracker or salad. Add extra romaine, pickles, cucumber and mustard to wraps and sandwiches!
