Vegan Chickpea "Tuna" Mayo Sandwich


Who would have thought that the humble chickpea could me used to make such a delicious sandwich?! I'll admit that I really didn't, but having heard the buzz about chickpea "tuna" mayo sandwiches, I just knew it was something that I had to try for myself! Another thing I love about this sandwich is that it's just plants. Yes, I realise that might sound stupid considering I eat a vegan diet, but what I mean is that there's no fake processed meats in here, just hearty plant goodness! I'm not against fake meats, but I just appreciate that such a simple set of ingredients can create something so tasty!

Another benefit of chickpeas is that they're a great of plant-based protein AND healthy fats! I picked up my vegan mayo from a vegan supermarket in my hometown, but I've spotted them appearing in supermarket and health food stores, so they're easily findable! I know this recipe is going to become a staple for me, as it's super easy to make and last for a few days in the fridge - perfect for prepping my lunches for the week!

This is a super quick and easy recipe to follow, the only part that is a little time consuming is mashing the chickpeas, but that will depend on how strong you are hah!
