Recipe for Faux Tuna

I missed tuna sandwiches dearly when I went vegan.  This is a wonderful, easy, super yummy recipe!
I added capers because honestly, I add capers to anything I can.  :)
Serves 6
What You Need:
  • 30 ounces (2 cans) garbanzo beans, drained
  • 1/4 cup red onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup celery, finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup dill pickle, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons nori seaweed flakes
  • 1 cup vegan mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, ground
  • 12 slices bread, lightly toasted
  • 6 large, crisp lettuce leaves
  • 12 fresh tomato slices
What You Do:
  1. In a large bowl, mash the garbanzo beans with a potato masher or the back of a fork.
  2. Fold the onion, celery, garlic, pickle, nori, mayonnaise, salt, and black pepper into the garbanzo beans. Combine thoroughly.
  3. Lightly toast the bread. Spread the salad on one slice and stack with a lettuce leaf, two tomato slices, and another slice of bread. Cut sandwiches in half and serve.

  1. Hi Amanda,

    Thank you for taking the Meatless Monday pledge and sharing vegan recipes with your readers! I’m impressed by how much that faux tuna looks like real tuna, and the nori is an interesting addition that I wouldn’t have thought of!

    Going meatless once a week is beneficial to your health and the environment because it reduces your risk of chronic preventable diseases and saves precious resources. That’s why I work for Meatless Monday. Many bloggers like to feature videos or photos of meatless meals that they’ve made.
