Recipe: Mock Tuna Salad

Warning!  New Favorite Lunch Alert!  This is AH-MAZ-ING! 


1 can chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
1/4 c vegan mayonnaise (I used Veganaise)
3 baby kosher dill pickles (chopped)
1/32 c baby carrots, finely diced
S&P to taste, Sprinkle of Tony's cajun seasoning

Coarsely mash one can of chickpeas in a bowl.  Dice carrots and pickles, and add to bowl.  Spoon in mayo and stir together!  Enjoy with crackers, on a bed of baby spinach, or on a sandwich!  Wonderful stuff :)  

*I may try to add some finely diced celery next time...maybe some apple (I like both in tuna salad...)  It is a very close substitute for tuna.  Similar in taste and texture, but not fishy (obviously! LOL)  We will be making this often!

  1. I've bookmarked a very similar recipe :) I read other comments that said you can crumble up some dried seaweed snacks to add a "fishy" flavor to make the salad seem closer to the real thing.
