Vegan tuna salad??

Tuna sandwiches were a staple food of mine all throughout childhood and in my college years. I would eat it whenever I could; at least a few times a week. I missed tuna a lot when I went vegan, but luckily there’s always a vegan version to any non-vegan food. Here’s how I make a chickpea tuna salad:

  • 1 can of chickpeas
  • a few tablespoons of hummus (or mayo, or avocado)
  • 1 nori sheet
  • garlic powder
  • black pepper
  • nutritional yeast
  • thyme
  • chopped dill
  • red onion
  • carrots

Pulse the chickpeas and hummus in a food processor. It should still be chunky, but also easy to spread on a sandwich. Once that’s combined rip up the nori sheet into small pieces and pulse that until it is evenly distributed throughout the mashed chickpeas. Move to a container, and add in all the spices and whichever veggies you want to add in, I used some red onion and carrots. Celery would be nice in it too. I let it chill in my fridge for a bit before eating it, and put it on two toasted mini bagels topped with spinach, tomatoes, and sesame seeds.

That’s how I make chickpea “tuna” salad sandwiches. This is an easy and delicious alternative to tuna, and honestly tastes even better. Let me know your favorite non-vegan food that you veganize in the comments.
