I mentioned mock “tuna” salad in an earlier post. Of course, I couldn’t get it out of my head after that until I made some. The recipe I used is below. To make a panini I used organic white bread and spread the salad over one slice, then covered the top with marinated artichoke hearts. Then grill it on a panini pan or press. I promise you – you’ll be glad you made this!
Vegan Chickpea Salad (mock tuna salad)
- 1 15 oz can of chickpeas
- 2 heaping Tb of eggless mayo (or to taste)
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- 1/2 tsp Garam Masala or curry powder
- dash of garlic powder (or 1/2 clove fresh)
- onion salt and pepper to taste
Mash the chickpeas with a fork or potato masher. You can use the food processor if you’re careful. Too long and you’ll have a smooth hummusy like paste instead of a chunky tuna one.
Add in the other ingredients, mix, taste and season again if needed. This is a great lazy day sandwich spread!
