A recipe from www.theveggietable.com My DH wants me to make this for him. Time does not include overnight soaking time.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Rinse the almonds and seeds (a sieve or fine-holed colander is needed for the sesame seeds), place in bowl, cover with water, and let soak overnight. Rinse and drain.
  2. Place the almonds, seeds, chickpeas, lemon juice, T water, soy sauce, oil, and kelp powder in food processor. Blend until well mixed but not quite smooth, 1-2 minutes.
  3. Combine the mayonnaise, celery, onion, and parsley in the bowl, then add chickpea mixture. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Notes This mock tuna salad will last 2-3 days in the refrigerator.

Superb...will be a staple in my family. I want to eat it all. Delicious and protein rich.. Great for a vegetarian. I am so glad it keeps in the fridge for a couple of days... Not that I think there'll ever be leftovers. I didn't have kelp or sunflower seeds, and I used 1/2 Greek yogurt for mayonnaise. What a find.

Yum, yum - delicious! While I'm not sure this tastes like tuna, it sure is a wonderful spread for a sandwich! I added a couple of tbsp of dill relish to give the illusion of tuna, which worked for us. I also used slivered almonds, as I didn't soak the seeds and nuts overnight, rather for 4 hours. This worked well. I have to comment that my parrots LOVED this and I can't believe how much they could put away!! I'll definately make this again - thanks! Made for Best of 2010, from Magpie Diner's cookbook.

I agree - really good! This is the first time I've made chickpea salad or 'mock' sandwich filling - it's not only easy, it's really tasty. In the interest of time I left out the nuts and didn't soak the seeds, (I can imagine how great that would be though). I also halved the recipe as I'll likely be the only one eating it. I added a little extra seasoning and some dill just for kicks. This will be a regular for me! If calories are a concern, I have to say that even halving the recipe I think I'd have enough for 4 decently sized sandwiches or wraps.
