Toasted Vegan Faux-Tuna Salad Sandwich

IMG_0719-P (1280x960)

We used to make tuna salad sandwiches at The Family Tree Restaurant but I think I like the vegan version better. Somehow they are fresher without being fishy although my version is not one of those more sophisticated versions around. I had these sandwiches when John was in London and as being the only one at the time, it was too much for me. So I stuffed roasted baby peppers with the mixture the next day. Don’t worry, I will be posting that as separate recipe.

Vegan Faux-Tuna Sandwich could easily provide you with some interesting variety without the fishiness. It is packed with protein too.

1 tin chickpeas (420gr), drained and rinsed
1 small carrot, peeled and crated
1 stalk celery, chopped finely
1 tsp Rice Seasoning (I used Nori Komi Furikake brand which is a mixture of sesame seeds, salt, sugar and seaweed)
1 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
4 tbsp vegan mayonnaise
1 tsp Dijon mustard

• After draining and rinsing the chickpeas, mash them with a potato masher. You could use a food processor however, you need to be careful as you don’t want them to be too mushy.
• In a bowl, mix the mashed chickpeas, grated carrot, chopped celery, dill, rice seasoning, vegan mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper. Mix well to combine.
• Spread the mixture evenly across toasted bread. Cut into triangles and serve.

        1. We have just picked the photo and the recipe is a mixture of two different recipes anyway; easy :) I will let you now when it is posted. There is an onion spread that you did some time ago and I would like to try it as soon as I get a chance. Always liked the sound of it. Thanks for dropping by :)
