About a year ago, I posted a Vegan Tuna Salad recipe that I absolutely fell in love with. The only problem with it was that it called for vegan mayo, which we usually made from scratch using cashews. But you know what? Cashews are freakin’ expensive! So making homemade mayo doesn’t happen all that often on our currently excruciatingly tight budget.
But I was really craving something other than a burger for lunch. I wanted a sandwich. A yummy one.
Necessity being the mother of invention, I decided to make a another version of this vegan delicacy. I was surprised that it came out so well considering I really only had two of the ingredients the original recipe called for.
I’ve recently been on a sandwich kick. One thing I really miss being vegan is the sandwiches I used to eat during lunch. So I’ve been trying to find alternatives and so far, I have found some divinely delectable recipes.
Most recently, I discovered a vegan tuna salad recipe. It actually comes out looking and tasting like tuna!
I was surprised how good this actually tasted.
It’s made with chickpeas, aka garbanzo beans and three tablespoons of vegan mayo. It’s absolutely delicious. The original recipe can be found in The Happy Herbivore Cookbook: Over 175 Delicious Fat-Free and Low-Fat Vegan Recipes on page 113 (affiliate link). I’ve changed things around a little, so this is my version of the recipe. (more…)
Most of you may know that I’m a vegan. I started out vegetarian and then went vegan about three years ago. I originally did it for health reasons and now, it’s the morality of the thing. Since becoming vegan, I’ve had the opportunity to try a number of different recipes from various vegan cookbooks and I’m going to be sharing some of my favorites on this blog in the weeks to come. This one is probably my absolute favorite.
