Chickpea 'Tuna' Sandwich

Chickpea 'Tuna' Sandwich

A plant-based take on the classic tuna sweetcorn sandwich filling from our ambassadors We Are So Vegan. When pressed with a fork the chickpeas create a tuna like texture - genius. Super tasty, easy to make and keeps our fish in the sea. Try it today. 

Ingredients

1 x 400g / 14oz tin chickpeas

1 spring onion

Handful of fresh dill

125g / 4.4oz tinned sweetcorn (drained weight)

1 tablespoon jarred capers 

1 tbsp juice from the capers jar

3 tablespoons vegan mayo

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Salt and pepper (optional)

Method

1: Drain and rinse the chickpeas and transfer them to a mixing bowl and mash them with a fork until mostly broken down.

2: Thinly slice the spring onion and dill, and add both to the mixing bowl.

3: Next add the sweetcorn, capers, caper juice, vegan mayo, lemon juice, mustard and pinches of salt and pepper. Stir until fully combined.

4: Use as a filling for a banging sandwich, jacket potatoe or a salad topper.
