Anthony asked me one day this week if I wanted a Tuna-like sandwich... Honestly, nothing about the offer seemed exciting but when he brought me over this No Tuna Chickpea Salad Sandwich to try, I was so happy!
Not only is this vegan recipe really pretty, it tastes A LOT like TUNA!
I was utterly shocked at how much this resembled a classic tuna sandwich. Seriously... I don't post anything on here that I don't think others will like, plus OUR GOAL is for you to like it so much that you share the recipe with your friends!
There is a lot of really great information on line about chickpeas and their nutritional content.
A small 2006 study found that participants had less low density lipoprotein (LDL), or “bad,” cholesterol in their blood when they ate a diet with added chickpeas, compared with a diet with added wheat, for 5 weeks.
The researchers noted that the fiber in chickpeas may be responsible for the reduction in LDL cholesterol.Medical News Today

No Tuna Chickpea Salad Sandwich
- 1 15 ounce can of chickpeas rinsed and drained
- 3 tablespoons vegan mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- ¼ cup onion diced
- ¼ cup dill pickles diced
- ¼ cup celery diced
- salt and pepper to taste
- Pretty simple, mix everything together in a bowl.
- If you are planning to make this into a sandwich, you will have to mash the chickpeas (otherwise they will constantly fall out of the bread). Mash about ¾ of the chickpea mixture leaving the rest for texture. It will resemble a tuna sandwich as well!
