No Tuna Chickpea Salad Sandwich

Anthony Seed
This is the plant-based version of the classic Tuna Salad Sandwich. It is very yummy, doesn’t smell when you open your sandwich (sorry Tuna) and is still packed with protein along with fiber.
The flavors are very similar and it is a very easy lunchtime meal when you don’t have a lot of time.

  • 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!
