No-Tuna Salad/No-Tunsalat

No-Tuna Salad is something I haven’t made for along while. Now I had some leftover Chickpeas, that were perfect for the purposte. I used to make someone elses recipe, but this time I made my own as I have a habit of doing when I figure things out. As few ingrediences as possible and as much flavor as possible. This No-Tuna Salad is so good and actually better then “the real deal” and on top with a totally clear concience. I love it. I didn’t make a full portion this time, but you can easialy adjust the recipe for some leftovers. And if you want to make a whole can or more that’s easily done too. Here it is served on Danish Rye bread, but it’ll be fantastic in a sandwich or on a baquette too.

Vegansk No-tuna Salad

240 g chickpeas, soaked and boiled or one can
50 g red onion (one small onion)
App. 2-3 Tbsp. Luna’s vegan Mayo, As much as you find appropriate
1-2 Tbsp. lemon juice citronsaft (optional)
1-2 tsp sea salt (hold the salt til later)
Freshly groud pepper
2-3 tsp. capers from a glass – and extra as garnish
1-2 tsp kelp powder (optional)
A bit of cress or parsley as garnish karse

Mash the chickpeas with a fork. If you have a food processor then use the “pulse” function (5-8 times), so the get a flaky structure. You want them chopped up without turning into mush. and it’s alright with some half chickpeas in between. Put all into a bowl.

Chop the onion finly and add it to all the other ingrediences and put in with the chickpleas and mix well and taste to adjust seasoning/lemon juice etc. It’s fine to let the salad rest for a bit in the fridge before serving.

When the (if) the salad has been in the friedge overnight it can be a good idea to make another tasting/adjusting.

Serve on corarse rye bread, in a sandwich or on a baquette – give it a try the possibilities are endless and delicioous.

*TIP* If you like your salad to have the “fishy” taste of tuna salad, you can use ½-1 tps kelp powder, which is an algee product to be bought in your health shop.
