Tastes Like Tuna Salad Sandwiches

It was so good I ate it all and didn't get a photo. Another winner. This actually tastes like tuna...ok I haven't had tuna for awhile...but even my carnivore husband says it tastes GREAT and like tuna. It tastes so good in a toasted sandwich with lettuce and tomato. I used spelt bread. Mmmm.

This recipe uses kelp powder. Kelp powder has an abundance of health benefits. It contains natural iodine ( which is way better then the chemical iodine) plus virtually every mineral in the ocean. From calcium, vitamin K, iron, folate, zinc and many more.

1 1/2 cups cooked chickpeas
2 celery ribs, minced
1/4 cup minced onion
1 tsp capers, drained and chopped
1/2 cup veganaise
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp kelp powder
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

In a medium bowl, coarsely mash the chickpeas. Add the celery, onion, capers, veganaise, lemon juice, mustard, and kelp powder. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix until well combined. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.
Tastes good on bread with lettuce and tomato.
