This recipe is amazing because its main ingredient is good quality vegan protein: chickpeas. But it doesn’t really taste like chickpeas!

  • Serve on toasted bread and sprinkle kala namak and black lava salt for the best taste experience. Top with green olives and enjoy, this vegan tuna is delicious!

Notes

  • We recommend using our Vegan Mayonnaise for the making of this recipe, as this combination of flavours will deliver the best results. Nonetheless, the recipe tastes great and it will be a lot healthier with the addition of the Healthy Cashew Mayo instead.
