  • 15 oz Chickpeas Canned or fresh
  • 1 tbsp Nutritional Yeast
  • .25 cup Vegan Mayo
  • .5 tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • .5 tsp Salt
  • .5 tsp Garlic Powder
  • .5 tsp Onion Powder


  • .25 cup Diced Onion
  • .25 cup Spring Onion
  • 1 sheet Nori Sheet


  • 1. Drain Chickpeas and add them to a mixing bowl and start mashing with a fork or masher.
  • 2. Add in other ingredients and mash.
  • 3. This process can take a few minutes. If you want it thicker, you can leave it half-mashed so that the chickpeas are somewhat intact. Or if you want more of a tuna consistency, mash until you get a smoother texture.
  • 4. Once you're happy with your desired vegan "Tuna" simply serve it on sourdough bread, in a sandwich, or in a salad.
