Veganizing tuna salad is SO easy! Learn how to make it with just 9-simple ingredients and less than 10 minutes of your time. This makes for the perfect lunch on the go and kids will love it!
Today is an exciting day! Not only do we have a new recipe for ya, but I also did my first shoot with the brand new ceramic plates that we picked up on Etsy a few weeks ago. I know, completely unrelated, but I’m too excited not to talk about it! They are from a mother daughter pottery business from a small town in Ohio called Linda Renee Pottery and I would highly recommend them 🙂
Okay, now on to the recipe.
We thought that it would be fitting to make a classic vegan tuna salad as a part of our vegan fish taste test video on YouTube. We do have another chickpea tuna salad on the blog that uses tahini and sauerkraut which is delicious as well, but today, we are staying true to the OG recipe that our mama’s used to make us.
The great thing about this recipe is that it requires just 9 simple ingredients: chickpeas, vegan mayonnaise, celery, red onions, sweet relish, mustard, lemon, black pepper and the secret ingredient, seaweed.
The seaweed is optional BUT it is recommended if you want that fishy flavor (without the fish, of course). It’s pretty mild so you don’t have to worry about an overpowering flavor. Trust me, vegan fish isn’t really my jam, but this I can enjoy!
We served ours for as a sandwich for lunch with sliced tomatoes, red onions and lettuce. It is also great with crackers as a snack!
