Chickpea Melt

When I was a pescetarian, I loved tuna melt. So I veganised the recipe using chickpeas, from which comes its name Chickpea Melt.


Not gonna lie, my friend told me the other day that it was the best dish I ever cooked for her. Indeed, the mixture is super tasty and will please the whole family for sure!

The recipe can be done with or without a food processor! The food processor will simply save you time by not having to cut your vegetables and crush your chickpeas by hand.


Prep : 10 min

Cooking : 15 min

Servings : 4


  • 540 ml chickpeas (can or cooked)

  • 3 stalks of celery

  • 1 small onion

  • 2 big garlic dill pickles

  • ½ cup (125 ml) vegenaise (I used Hellmann's vegan mayonnaise)

  • 1 tsp (5 mL) Dijon mustard

  • Salt & pepper

  • 4 vegan naan breads (I used Rivaj brand found at Coscto)

  • 200 g grilling cheeze (I used Gusta’s italiano cheeze)


  1. Coarsely chop chickpeas using a food processor or a potato masher. Transfer to a large bowl.

  2. Chop celery, onion and pickles in small pieces using a food processor or a knife and add to the chickpeas.

  3. Add the vegenaise, Dijon mustard and salt & pepper to the chickpea mixture. Mix well.

  4. On a baking sheet, line up the naan breads and spread the mixture over each one. Garnish with cheeze.

  5. Bake 15 minutes, or until topping is hot, then put on broil 1-2 minutes to toast lightly.
