Vegan Chickpea “Tuna”

Photo Aug 30


Today I’m going to be sharing my chickpea “tuna” recipe. Before I started my plant-based diet I used to be a big fan of tuna sandwiches and I honestly think that this is even better and of course tastes even better knowing that no animals were harmed! You can make this into a “tuna salad” or in a sandwich as I did above. I love to have it in a simple hamburger bun with lettuce, tomatoes, and vegan cheese. My husband is actually not a fan of actual tuna but he loves this recipe and it’s been a huge hit with my family and friends. It’s also very quick and easy to make especially if you’re in a rush and just need a quick lunch. So, if you’d like to know how to make it then check it out down below.




Servings: 2 servings

Prep time: 10 minutes



16oz can chickpeas

2 teaspoons lemon juice

2 teaspoons lime juice

2 tablespoons vegan mayo

(I use the brand Hellman’s. Their vegan mayo tastes identical to their original one and its my favorite)

1/4 teaspoon himalayan salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 small white onion chopped


  1. Drain the can of chickpeas and pour them into a bowl.
  2. Add the mayonnaise and mash them together to get a chunky consistency. You don’t want to mash them too much.
  3. chop half of the small onion into small pieces and add them to the mixture.
  4. Add all the other ingredients and mix together.


That’s really it; its that simple. I did not add the onions to my picture above since I was sharing it with my husband and he is not a fan of them. Sometimes I’ll chop vegetables that I have at home at the time and also add them into the mixture and that’s also really good. You can play around with the recipe and adjust it to your liking. It’s really delicious and I think you’ll all love it! Let me know in the comments down below if you give this a try and what you think!
