Wash produce before use


Make the chickpea “tuna”

  • Rinse the chickpeas.
  • Coarsely chop the celery.
In a medium bowl, using a fork, masher, or the bottom of a bowl, mash the chickpeas to a coarse paste. Stir in the celery, Dijon sauce base, and 1 to 2 teaspoons oil; season to taste with salt and pepper. Alternatively, in a food processor, combine all the ingredients and pulse until a chunky mixture forms.


Prepare the spinach-strawberry salad

  • Remove the green hulls from the strawberries; cut the berries into quarters.
  • Coarsely chop the walnuts.
  • Juice half the lemon; cut half into wedges for garnish. [Juice 1 lemon; cut 1 lemon into wedges.]
In a large bowl, toss together the spinach, strawberries, walnuts, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil; season to taste with salt and pepper.


Toast the lavash

On the stovetop directly over a flame, or in a dry medium frying pan over medium heat, warm the lavash, turning once, until lightly toasted, about 30 seconds per side. Alternatively, toast them in a toaster oven. Cut or tear the lavash into wedges.


Transfer the chickpea “tuna” to individual plates. Serve with the lavash, spinach-strawberry salad, and lemon wedges.
