Instead of tuna, these boys are made from chickpeas with seaweed flakes to give them that scent and taste of the sea.

Chickpea 'Tuna' Salad Sandwich [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan

Ingredients

  • 1- 15 ounces can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 3 stalks celery with leaves, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened dill pickle relish
  • 2 teaspoons kelp or dulse or seaweed flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon each onion powder, dill, parsley, celery salt and Old Bay seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegan mayonnaise

Preparation

  1. Mash the chickpeas so that hardly any whole ones remain. Add all ingredients and mix well. Add more flakes if you want it to taste more “like the sea” or less if you want. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. Serve the chickpea “tuna” salad on a platter with lettuce and veggies or put it in a sandwich. I added romaine lettuce, tomatoes, and alfalfa sprouts to mine. Tom had his on sourdough bread while I had mine on gluten-free red rice bread.

Old Bay and tuna just don\'t go together to me. Old Bay is for crab. Also tuna isn\'t a fishy tasting fish so why the seaweed. I\'ve been making chickpea tuna salad for years but I don\'t try to turn it fishy. Tuna has its own taste. There\'s really no getting it with kelp flakes and Old Bay. Neither remind me of tuna. I do add ground nuts in my chickpea salad though to give it more body. Usually either almonds or hazelnuts.

How long should the tuna be refrigerated for to firm it up though? It doesn\'t say.

Just made it. I can say that out of the countless Vegan Tuna Salad recipes, it is easily the best.

The thought of something being beans but being sea foody. I'd rather turn chick peas into hummus or add a bit of spice than make them salty. :-)

Made this for lunch, and my "reluctant" vegan sons gobbled it up. Love it! I used Isa's recipe.
