Lately I had been wanting a tuna salad sandwich.. I can’t even tell you when the last time I had one because I was never a tuna fish fan even when I ate fish.. I am not that fond of the ’sea’ flavor but none the less, I wanted some! I asked around for a good faux-tuna recipe and a friend has provided me with another that sounds amazing! I will be trying that next! This one was pretty easy and only required the purchase of 1 ingredient (the kelp powder), the rest I had in my pantry. I think you could probably substitute the kelp powder for nori if you run it through your food processor to make it a fine powder.
1 15 oz. can chickpeas, drained
1/4 cup vegan mayonnaise
1/3 cup minced celery
2.5 T. minced dill pickle (more or less to taste)
1/2 T. nutritional yeast
1 green onion, chopped
1 t. soy sauce
1/2 t. kelp powder
pepper, to taste
In a medium bowl, mash the chick-peas coarsely with a fork. Mix in the remaining ingredients. That’s it!
