Vegan “Tuna” Salad – Episode 2
15 oz can of Garbanzo Beans
2 TBL, more or less, Vegan Mayo ( Veganaise, Just Mayo, etc)
Onion ( depends on how much onion you like-I suggest a small slice to start)
Shredded Carrots (small handful)
Chopped Celery – one stalk
Salt, pepper, celery salt to taste
Put the garbanzo beans in a sieve or colander and rinse and drain. After the beans are well drained, put them in a food processor with mayo, a slice of onion, carrots and use the PULSE button on your food processor and pulse a few times. You are not making hummus so be careful to not over pulse. You want small chunketts. Scrap the mixture into a bowl. Add
chopped celery, salt, pepper and celery salt to taste. This is delish as a sandwich, wrap or just with wheat crackers. Also feel free to add or delete any ingredients you may not like— don’t like onions, leave it out. I use sweet relish, but maybe you like dill pickle relish— still delish. Salt and pepper up to you , celery salt is only there because I like it. Let me know how you like it ( email@example.com)!
