Chick Pea “Tuna” Salad

I love this simple and delicious “fake-take’ on Tuna Salad using chick peas as the base…DELISH and a staple in my fridge. Serve it rolled up in a Gluten Free Rice Tortilla or scoop onto a bed of baby greens!

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cans chickpeas, drained & rinsed
  • 1/2 small red onion, diced
  • 2 tbl capers, drained
  • 1 tbl freshly chopped dill
  • 1/4 c. chopped walnuts or almond slivers
  • 3 tbl grapeseed Vegenaise
  • 1 tbl dijon
  • 1 tbl apple cider vinegar
  • sea salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 tsp dulse flakes (optional)

Using a food processor fitted with the S-blade, grind chickpeas until flaky. Transfer to a bowl. Add remaining ingredients a mix well with a fork to incorporate. Season with salt & pepper.

    I made this last night and added a bunch to a salad and it was fantastic! I used the recipe straight from the book which was just a little different. Had scallions, no dulse flakes.
