    Chef #289357's Note:

    Many other vegetarian tuna salad uses tofu or other relatively expensive ingredients, but not this one! Just a can of chickpeas and a couple other ingredients you probably already have in the fridge. It has a pretty realistic texture - add whatever you like, and would normally put in tuna salad. The ingredient measurements are approximate - I have never actually measured how much to put in, just eyeballed it. Please put in as much or little as you want, or whatever you want.

      I just tried this with Great Northern beans and loved it! I used my Braun handmixer stick mixer, being sure to pulse so the beans did not get mushy. It took less time to make than than I would have thought and no fishy odor, which is a major plus in my book. I will be making this again and again. Thanks for the recipe.

      I made this last night. I used chick peas and put them in a food processor with the onion to chop it up and that worked perfectly. I added hot peppers (because I have to make everything spicy for some reason) and left out the carrots, celery and mustard. I only left them out because I didn't have them on hand. I then added Miracle Whip and pickle relish, which is how I would make a tuna sandwich anyway. I decided to throw this all in a tortilla with some lettuce and it was awesome! I am a vegetarian, and miss tuna sandwiches, but this satisfied my craving for sure. Even my meat-eating boyfriend liked it. Thanks for the recipe!

      Oh. My. Goodness. I loved this stuff! I followed the recipe exactly and then added a little bell pepper to the mix. This stuff is so great, It would please the staunchest tuna fan.
