Better-Than-Tuna, Chickpea Salad

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Kozmic Blues

Inspired from the recipe in Vegan Table. "This recipe has all the flavor of the lunchtime staple but leaves the cholesterol, and mercury behind" I usually cut this recipe in HALF, and as you can see from the list of ingredients, that is quite easy to do! I also like to add dill pickle to mine, which I've listed below. Some chopped scallion might be nce too... ^_^

Really liked how this turned out. Left out the red pepper and walnuts (didn't have them on hand), and added red onion. Lots of freshly ground black pepper, and kosher salt. Tastes great, and even better the next day!

  1. Add the chickpeas to a food processor or blender and pulse to grind them down into small flaky pieces.
