Last week, my dad was saying he’d like to stop eating tuna if he could only find something better to put in his sandwiches, so I found this recipe for a Vegan “Tuna” Sandwich made with chickpeas. We both tried the recipe the same day, and we both loved it. I haven’t had a tuna sandwich in at least 20 years, and I remember not particularly liking the experience. This chickpea salad, however, was delicious.
I’ll definitely be making this recipe again, since it was so simple and so satisfying. Who’d have thought you could substitute chickpeas for tuna? Good to know.
The recipe made five sandwiches, so my calculator says I spent less than $1 per serving. Instead of paying $25 for five tuna sandwiches in a New York deli, which I would never do, I spent $5 to eat the same number of awesome sandwiches at home instead. So that’s $20 more for the June tally!
