Chi-Chi Bean Toasts

Chi-Chi Bean Toasts

Leslie Durso

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.


*This recipe was adapted from its original vegan-form from Leslie Durso. Visit her website to see the full recipe and more delicious vegan recipes.
