Garbanzo Tuna Salad 

3 cups cooked garbanzo beans (530g)
1 cup carrot, grated (85g)
1/4 cup red onion, diced (30g)
1/2 cup celery, diced (60g)
1 teaspoon mustard (4g)
1/2 cup vegan mayo (120g)
2 teaspoon dulse flakes (4g)
1/2 teaspoon salt (3g)

  • Place garbanzo beans in a food processor and pulse several times until the beans are flaky. Do not over mix or they will turn mushy.
  • Place garbanzo beans into a mixing bowl and add the remaining ingredients to the bowl.
  • Mix until all ingredients are combined.


  • You can serve this as a sandwich (Daiya cheese Tuna melt anyone?) or serve with crackers as a snack.
  • You can use canned garbanzo beans or if you have the time you can cook your own. If you use canned, be sure to drain and rinse them before using.
