Chickpea ‘Tuna’ Salad

Jun 18, 2019

The beauty of a non-dairy chickpea-based “tuna” salad is that you can take it on the go. Pack it for lunch at the office, on a road trip, or even a picnic at the beach—this delicious protein-packed meal won’t get funky if it spends a bit of time in the heat (unlike the mayonnaise-laden fish variety). Made with all the familiar flavors of the tuna salad you grew up with, plus a pinch of nori for that taste of the sea, this recipe does not disappoint. Scoop it onto a green salad for a punch of protein and flavor, pile it high between two slices of bread, or simply scoop it up with carrot sticks. It’s all good—and good for you! 

Ingredients

1 can chickpeas, drained
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
1 finely chopped celery stalk
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
3 tablespoons vegan mayo
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1 teaspoon finely chopped nori seaweed
1/2 teaspoon maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon cracked pepper

Instructions

1. In a medium bowl, mash the chickpeas until chunky.

2. Stir in the remaining ingredients until fully incorporated. Serve between toasted vegan pretzel buns, in lettuce cups, or with veggie sticks!
