Chickpea "Tuna" Sandwich

This Chickpea "Tuna" Sandwich is easy, healthy, delicious and sustainable!

This is a simple mock vegan "tuna" salad that can be served many ways:

  • It’s great alone.

  • Spread it on whole-grain or sourdough bread for a hearty sandwich.

  • Add it on top of a bed of leafy greens with a squeeze of lemon.

  • Scoop it up with crackers or pita chips.

  • To add freshness, cut bell pepper strips or cucumber slices - they also make great scoopers.

  • Pairs well with fresh fruit too!

The chickpeas are mashed to a tuna like consistency and are a great protein packed alternative to fish.
