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!


  • 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.

    It is so amazing how much this looked and smelled like tuna! So flavorful I couldn't believe it, thanks Miss

    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.

    I’m actually eating this right now for lunch and can’t get enough. Love your cookbook. Found it at the library and have put it on my wishlist to buy.
