Thank you for your reply. It is appreciated. I will try a mixture of both the white beans, which are OK, and the tofu. Again, thank you. Be well.

Emily: Grandson is a vegetarian that must avoid chickpeas. Any ideas of a substitute that would hold up in processing? Thank you.

Good question... poor fella with the allergy! White beans, perhaps? Probably wouldn't need much processing, a little smash with a fork on some might do the trick. If he needs to avoid white beans also, you could possibly try chopped up sauteed tofu??

so what is Bavarian mustard ? I live in Bavaria, not sure which one you mean.

what a great idea! will try!

Thoughts on a substitute for bavarian mustard? Also, instead of food processing the chickpeas, what about a rough chop with a knife after draining from the can?
emily April 4, 2014
Im sure rough chop would work, I just like the texture created by breaking them up a bit. As far as the bavarian mustard sub, any stone ground mustard would do. you could easily skip it, but it does add a little zip that balances the tang of the yogurt.

This is pretty brilliant! Can't wait to try it. I'm assuming you are using canned chickpeas, right?

Yes ma'am!
