Vegan "tuna" sandwich

I was cleaning out the fridge this afternoon and noticed that I had a container with some cooked chickpeas, and we needed lunch. Easy to whip up I made these "tuna" sandwiches for the family. Chickpeas are a good source protein!

Vegan "tuna" sandwich

1/4 cup vegan mayonnaise
1 stalk celery- minced
1/4 onion-minced
2 cups chickpeas- chopped roughly
1 sheet nori- toasted and crushed
1 tsp dulse
1/2 tsp sea salt
squeeze of half a lemon
a few shakes of Tabasco

In a food processor add celery and onion- pulse until minced and scoop into a medium sized bowl.
Add chickpeas to food processor and pulse until roughly chopped, scoop and add to onion and celery mixture. Over an element on high hold nori sheet over until crispy. Crush into bowl of chickpea mixture.
Add mayo and the rest of the ingredients, stir and spread onto bread. Enjoy!


  1. Mmmm, vegan tuna sandwiches, so good! I love the idea of using chickpeas.

  2. It sounds so good! I'll try it. Without the celery. (I'm allergic to it....)
