Servings 4


  • Steamer


  • 600 gr. Potatoes.
  • 500 gr. Frozen grean peas, sweet corn, carrots and beans*.
  • 400 gr. Chickpeas (1 tin).
  • Olive oil.
  • Vegan mayonnaise.
  • Himalayan salt.
  • Ground black pepper.


  • Wash, peel and cut the potatoes in cubes of around 1cm. Place them on one of the steam levels.
  • On a second tier place the frozen vegetables and spread them well. If you have large chunck of frozen veggies, don't worry they will cook just fine.
  • Cook all the vegetables in a steamer for around 25 minutes. Check in every now and then as cooking times can vary depending on your steamer and you don't want to overcook them, especially potatoes.
  • While the veggies are getting cooked, open a a can of chickpeas, rinse them and place them in a glass salad bowl.
  • With the help of a fork, prepare a chuncky chickpea mash. I use this as a replacement for hard boiled eggs.
  • When the vegetables are cooked to your taste you can cool them down with water (optional) and then place them in the salad bowl together with the mashed chickpeas.
  • Season to taste with: olive oil, vegan mayo, himalayan salt and black pepper.
  • You can serve this dish as: a side, together with vegan burgers or as an appetizer.


*I choose frozen vegetables, but if you prefer or have fresh ones the cooking time can vary. Cooking times for fresh produce is likely to be less than frozen ones.
