Enjoy this take on a traditional tuna melt but veganized with chickpeas
So here’s the thing: I’ve never actually had tuna salad. Before going Vegan, I was an extremely picky eater. I never liked fish so it was just something that I never ate.
However, once going vegan I heard about the “chickpea tuna” craze. Being a major fan of chickpeas, I decided to try it out. I am obsessed! I have a few other chickpea “tuna” recipes, including no “tuna” chickpea casserole and vegan “tuna” pasta salad .
This time I wanted to do a more traditional recipe, which is why I created these melts.
These are actually incredibly easy to make but are so delicious!
I think it’s pretty obvious how much I love chickpeas. I post so many chickpea based recipes because I know not everyone is a fan of other vegan proteins like tofu or tempeh. They’re also cheap and packed with plant based protein. It’s also really easy to sub this recipe. Don’t like red onions? leave them out! You can also add other veggies like carrots or whatever other items you like to add to your chickpea tuna recipe.
I hope that you enjoy this recipe! If you make any of my recipes, don’t forget to tag me in the pictures @plantbasedjane
