Vegan Chickpea Tuna
Recipe type: Vegan
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 1 cup
Replace canned tuna with chickpeas for this realistic and protein rich tuna salad made with heart healthy chickpeas!
  • ½ nori sheet
  • 1 can chickpeas, drained
  • ¼ cup chopped celery
  • ¼ cup chopped red onion
  • ½ cup vegan mayonnaise
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Finely chop the half sheet of nori and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, smash the chickpeas. You can do this a few ways: with a fork, by hand; slowly pulsing with an immersion blender; or a few pulses in the food processor. You still want to leave some texture to it, it shouldn't be as creamy as hummus.
  3. Once mashed, add the rest of the ingredients, including the minced nori sheet. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Chill and serve with crackers, as a sandwich, or on a salad.
