Vegan Chickpea “Tuna” Salad

This is an easy chickpea “tuna” salad alternative, great for sandwiches or on crackers!

Here’s what you’ll need:


1 15oz can chickpeas (drained and rinsed)

1/2 small red onion (roughly chopped)

1/3 cup celery (optional) chopped

1/4 -1/3 cup vegan may or tahini

2 small dill pickles

1 1/2 tbsp lime or lemon juice

2 tsp dijon mustard

1 nori sheet (crumbled into small pieces)

1 tsp capers

1/2 tsp dried dill

Salt and Pepper to taste


  1. Roughly chop red onion, celery and dill pickles, transfer to food processor along with all the remaining ingredients.  If you don’t have a food processor, finely dice the veggies first, transfer the chickpeas to a medium-large bowl and mash with a fork or potato masher, then add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
  2. Pulse the mixture about 8-12 times until it is well incorporated but still has plenty of texture.
  3. Taste, adjust flavors with any of the ingredients!
  4. Make a sandwich or bring out the crackers, or a pita bread or a tortilla, add lettuce and tomato and EAT!!
