How to make Mock “Tuna” Chickpea Salad?
First you’ll wanna drain and rinse a can of chickpeas…
Next I like to pulse them a few times in the food processor to get the perfect texture…
But you can also mash them with a fork or potato masher if you prefer.
Once you have mashed chickpeas just put them in a bowl with remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
See… told ya it was super simple. 😉
And it will look something like this before adding the mayo and seasonings.
Can I make any substitutions?
This could easily be made Vegan just by using vegan mayo but other than that I wouldn’t recommend switching or leaving anything out.
I’ve actually had it with the vegan mayo and it’s equally as good.
