Did you know that you could turn a can of chickpeas into a ‘tuna’ salad?
It sounds crazy, I know! But you totally can do this.
Basically, you just sub in some chopped chickpeas for the tuna and everything else stays the same, and you end up with this super delicious, plant-based, tuna-like salad (without the tuna).
It’s amazing. And very tasty!
You can do as I did here, and pack it all on your favorite bread to build a sandwich. Or you can scoop some on top of your favorite salad. Really, anything you would do with traditional tuna salad can be done with this ‘chickpea’ version.
Now, you’ll notice I used all mayo in this recipe. But if you wanted to lighten it up or bulk up the protein, you can swap in some Greek yogurt for the mayo (assuming your are not a vegan!). It all works so just make it work for you. Enjoy!!
