Chi-Chi Bean Toasts

Leslie Durso


  • One  15-ounce can of garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed well
  • shallot, finely chopped
  • celery stalks, diced
  • 1/2 Cup  chopped dill
  • 1 Tablespoon  relish
  • 1/4 Cup  mayonnaise*
  • 1/4 Teaspoon  dry mustard
  • 1/4 Teaspoon  paprika
  •   Salt and pepper, to taste
  •   Sliced bread

A chi-chi bean is Leslie Durso's grandmother's nickname for garbanzo beans, and it makes its appearance in Leslie's recipe mixed in a flavorful vegan mayonnaise and served on soft bread. We adapted ours to use regular mayonnaise, but feel free to stick to vegan like Leslie.


In a medium-sized mixing bowl, smash the beans and shallots with a potato smasher or fork until the beans are broken into about ¼ of the size. Stir in the rest of the ingredients. Season to taste and serve as a sandwich or on sliced toasts as an appetizer.
