garbanzo beans that have been mashed take on the appearance of flaked tuna

This was hard for me to imagine but this mock tuna salad is GREAT.  Snagged this recipe at Summerfest from Allison Rivers Samson's food demo.  I made this for lunch yesterday, liked it so much, ate it again for dinner with fresh grilled peaches with blueberries.


2 cans garbanzo beans, drained
1/4 cup red onion, peeled and finely chopped
1/2 cup celery, finely chopped
1/4 tsp. garlic, minced
1/4 cup dill pickle, finely chopped
2 Tbsp. nori seaweed flakes
1/2 to 1 cup of vegan mayonnaise
1 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper, ground

for the sandwich: whole wheat rolls and fresh tomato slices


In a large bowl, mash the beans with a potato masher or the back of a fork.

Fold the onion, celery, garlic, pickle, nori, mayonnaise, salt, and black pepper into the beans.  Combine thoroughly.

Serve either on a sandwich, stuffing a tomato or as a cracker spread.  DELICIOUS

the "tuna" salad

my second helping was simply served atop fresh tomato slices
