Chickpea Salad

When I was meat eater, one of my favorite sandwiches was tuna with lemon pepper and pickles. Surprisingly, chickpeas with veganase tastes pretty similar to having a tuna fish sandwich. Even if tuna was never your thing, this is awesome! No, it does not taste like fish. But when you add the spices and mayo and put it on bread, it has a flavor that reminds me of tuna.

Chickpea Salad

2 cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed 
1 heaping T of veganase (I like no soy Earth Bound)
2 to 3 T pickle relish 
Lemon pepper, to taste
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 t whole grain mustard
1/2 t garlic powder
1/2 onion, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
1 large tomato, diced 

Empty beans into large bowl and mash with potato masher. I like the salad to be a little chunky so the above photo is the end result.

Next, add all of the ingredients and mix! That's it. It's quick and easy to throw together. It tastes great eaten right away or after refrigerated. 

Hope you like it!
