Description

Portable and easy meals, like the classic tuna salad sandwich, are an essential. This chickpea vegan tuna salad is a delicious vegan alternative. Try it!


Scale

Ingredients

  • (2) 15oz cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained (or 3 cups cooked chickpeas)
  • 1 shredded carrot
  • 2 stalks celery, finely diced
  • 1/2 small red onion, finely diced
  • Just Mayo or alternative vegan mayonaise, approximately 1/4 cup
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • optional: extras like mustard, dill, etc

Instructions

  1. Roughly mash the chickpeas in a medium size bowl. I like to leave some chunks of the peas in the mash.
  2. Add the carrot, celery, onion, salt and pepper and mix well with a fork
  3. Add mayo to desired texture of creaminess (I find tastes really vary in this regard)


Notes

  • It can be eaten right away, but I find that if it sits in the fridge for an hour or so the flavors meld nicely together. This works for a sandwich and is also wonderful on a bed of greens or with crackers.
  • Options: we had a blog reader make this with several additions: dulse, relish, mustard, cayenne. They really loved it and we encourage you to take this recipe and run with it! Make it your own 🙂
  • We happen to love adding dill to it, a heaping teaspoon is just about right!
