VEGAN CHICKPEA TUNA

Before going vegan I absolutely loved all kinds of seafood. Fish, scallops, shrimps... you name it. So for me taste wasn't an issue - at least then. Fish was also the last thing I gave up when transitioning to a vegan diet. It was rather ironic considering that we actually have fish at home as pets - regardless of that I still miss some familiar flavours - tuna for example.  

I have always loved savoury foods more than sweets. So now when it comes to preparing vegan holiday party dishes, especially snacks, I get to be especially creative.

VEGAN CHICKPEA TUNA

  • 1 can of organic chickpeas
  • 1 marinated pickle
  • small red bell pepper
  • 1-2 green onions
  • 2 tbsp of dark soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp of sweet mustard
  • black pepper
  1. rinse the chickpeas and mash them 
  2. chop the pickles, quarter of bell pepper and green onions very finely
  3. Add the soy sauce, mustard and black pepper to taste

I guess you could add a little bit of seaweed to make the taste more fishy. Either way it's a perfect replacement to make a vegan tuna sandwich or as little snacks. For Estonia's 100th birthday celebrations I served it on black bread crisps with a drop of vegan mayo. Used a little bit of blue food colour to make it more festive.

Whilst writing the post I got a craving to eat it again on some toast!
