Super Yummy. I added celery and used minced garlic and spicy brown mustard. It's hard for me to remember what tuna tasted like, but this spread is great either way.

I made this in the food processor to make it simple for me. We all really liked it. I can see a lot of variations. Thanks for sharing!

This is great. I chopped up the chickpeas with a potato masher, used a bit of diced red onion, no garlic and left off the scallion. Served it with lettuce and tomato in a whole wheat wrap. My SIL thought it tasted like tuna. My husband probably thinks it was tuna as I never told him what it was. Thanks. This is a great versatile recipe and I am sure I will make again.

This was a great recipe; I doubled it using 2-16oz cans of garbanzo beans, 4 cloves of garlic (in lieu of garlic powder), 1/4 red onion (in lieu of onion flakes) and added 3-4 slices of roasted bell pepper slices from a jar. Used a food processor. Yum! Dropped off a platter of sandwiches at an American Legion 4-Chaplain Services event and waiting to see if I hear a response - circumstances prevented my attendance :( I agree - more similar to egg salad vs tuna. But, I think leaving the garbanzo beans less pureed (in a food processor) may give it more the nutty/tuna taste. May have to try that one also! Either way - faux egg salad sandwiches - no cholesterol????

Very filling and satisfying! I used fresh white onions instead of flakes, though, and added extra mustard and relish. Reminded me more of egg salad than tuna. If you use a food processor on the garbanzo beans, it's very quick and easy to prepare!

Great recipe! I actually forgot the mustard (oops) and I didn't add any salt, because this recipe doesn't need any.

I really enjoyed this today just as a salad. I used my food processor to make it super easy. I really enjoyed the mustard flavor. I used onion powder instead of dried onions. I like the idea of using fresh onion and fresh garlic, and may try that next time. Thanks!
