The Better Than Tuna Sandwich

...And guess what? It's ALL Vegan! 

This recipe is definitely more of a comfort meal since there's lots of vegan mayo goodness, vegan cheese and yummy sourdough bread! Remember, this is a sandwich.. so it's completely customizable for your favourite toppings - my personal fave is lettuce, tomato, (vegan) cheese, and mustard! The recipe itself is even customizable, as I have a MAJOR sensitivity to onions so I make my batch without and it still tastes great!

Vegan Tuna Sandwich

  • 1 1/2 cup chickpeas, rinsed 
  • 1 celery stalk, chopped 
  • 1/3 cup white onion, finely chopped 
  • 2 tbsp dill, fresh or dry 
  • 2 tbsp vegan mayo (I used Earth Island and they can be found at Loblaws, or Whole Foods) 
  • 1 tsp capers (optional) 
  • salt and pepper to taste
     
  1. Pulse your chickpeas in your food processor or blender until roughly chopped (about 5 - 6 pulses). Make sure not to over blend, you still want a few chunks. 
  2. Once done, transfer the chickpeas to a mixing bowl and set aside. 
  3. Finely chop your celery, onions, and fresh dill (if that's what you're using) and add it into the bowl with the chickpeas. 
  4. Add in the vegan mayo, capers, salt and pepper and mix all of the ingredients until combined.
  5. Add your vegan tuna to any sandwich combo of your choice and enjoy! I recommend using some sourdough bread and toasting it before making your sandwich!
