WWEW: Link Party & Vegetarian/Vegan Chickpea Sandwich Spread

Good morning! Welcome to another What We Eat Wednesday. Today, I will be sharing a really yummy and healthy recipe. We love chickpeas in this house, but I've never tried to make a sandwich spread out of it before. Think egg salad or tuna salad. I think I may even like this more than those!
Here's what I used:
-1 15oz can of garbanzo beans/chickpeas, rinsed & boiled for a few minutes
-1 stalk of celery, finely chopped
-about 1/3 a red bell pepper, finely chopped,
-1 to 2 Tbs mayo (could substitute a vegan version of this)
-1 Tbs lemon juice
-1/2 tsp garlic powder
-1/2 tsp onion powder
-1 tsp dill weed
-salt and pepper to taste

Here is how I made it:
-I boiled and mashed my chickpeas. Then mixed in all the other ingredients. It gets better the longer it sits in the fridge, so I left mine for a few hours before dinner.
-Serve with pita bread, plain ol' bread, crackers, etc... SO YUMMY!

And now, onto this week's LINK PARTY!

First, I'd like to feature my favorite link-up from last week.
Irish Soda Bread with Raisins from A Mother's Shadow!
I know that St. Patrick's day has come and gone, but I love soda bread all the time! I'm planning on making this VERY SOON!

Here's the link up for this week! Feel free to post a few of your favorite recipe posts. Make sure you check out Alexis over at Laugh.Eat.Learn, too! Have an awesome day, guys.
