EASY “TUNA” SALAD

As a kid canned tuna made a regular appearance in my lunch and I loved it, but when I made the transition to a vegan lifestyle I had to part company with my tuna salad sandwiches.  This chickpea “tuna” salad is very close to the real thing.  Add the kelp powder for a “fish” flavour and bonus iodine to your diet!  Load your sandwich up with tomato slices and any leafy greens you like.  You won’t miss the tuna, I promise.  It’s delicious on crackers as well!!

Drain can of chickpeas in strainer and rinse.   Dry chickpeas well with paper towel.

Mash chickpeas in bowl.

Add rest of ingredients and mix well.

Make sandwich or enjoy on crackersEither way it’s delicious!
