Vegan Tuna Salad Sandwich

Vegan Tuna Salad Sandwiches one of my favorite meal/recipes — I have been enjoying it for several years now!  Imagine my surprise when I saw it on Lindsay’s blog, Happy Herbivore.  I guess great minds think alike (snicker!!).

You can eat this wonderful spread on a nice slice of Gluten Free Bread or use it as a dip!  I have even eaten it on Corn Thins (like rice cakes, only made with corn — very good!

 Mock Tuna Salad

  • 15 ounces chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 whole celery stalks
  • 2 tbsp relish (dill pickle)
  • ½ tsp onion flakes
  • 2 tsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp vegan mayo (fat-free)
  • ½ tsp kelp


In a large mixing bowl, mash chickpeas with a fork until coarse and no whole beans are left. Alternatively, pulse beans in a food processor a few times — careful not to puree, and transfer to a mixing bowl. Shred celery with a cheese grater or pulse a few times in a food processor. Transfer to the mixing bowl and add remaining ingredients, stirring to combine. Add more vegan mayo and/or kelp as necessary or desired and black pepper to taste.
