Chickpea “Tuna” Salad

chickpea-tuna-salad

Love this chickpea take on a tuna salad. The nutritional yeast and Maggi were inspired by Veg Annie’s recipe. She uses Bragg’s which tastes very similar to Maggi to me and I love nutritional yeast! I added onions and apple because I love little crunchy things in my “tuna” salad and my recipe is just vegetarian rather than vegan, I love me some Best Foods mayo!

1 1/2 cups cooked garbanzo beans or 1 can of garbanzo beans drained and rinsed
1/4 of an onion finely chopped
1 celery stalk chopped
1/3 of an apple chopped
1 tablespoons Best Foods mayo
1 tablespoon Maggi seasoning sauce (or Bragg’s liquid aminos)
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1 tsp onion powder

  1. Mash up the chickpeas and mix with all the ingredients.
  2. Serve on toasted bread.
