This mock tuna salad recipe is a perfect example of how it's not the animal protein we miss in a vegan diet, but the flavors.

Chickpeas do a great job standing in for tuna. This vegan take on a classic salad is also extremely flavorful and filling. You can use store-bought vegan mayonnaise or create your own oil-free Tofu Mayonnaise. Recipe below.

Make this mock tuna salad your own by adding 1/4 cup of unsalted roasted sunflower seeds for added crunch and nutrition. Also, if you are making a sandwich, don't be shy about layering. I love to add bean sprouts, avocado, lettuce, and tomatoes.

Hope you enjoy this vegan take on tuna salad.

You can find this recipe and all my delicious, nutritious, 5-ingredient vegan recipes in “The Easy 5-Ingredient Vegan Cookbook.”
