Step 1

Pour the rinsed and drained chickpeas in a lidded bowl. Use a fork to smash the chickpeas. If you like, you can leave some of them whole for a coarser texture. Add the dairy-free mayo and stir to distribute it evenly. Sprinkle the top with the onions, garlic powder, and desired amount of Sriracha. Stir to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste. If desired, add chopped red or yellow pepper.

Place a large spoonful (or two) of the mixture on a bun, topping with additional Sriracha and greens. Leftover mixture can be stored in the fridge, which will also allow flavors to marry further.
