A lovely and very healthy sandwich filling that I have on a regular basis is Chickpea Tuna. So called ... not by just me I hasten to add ... because of its slight resemblance in taste to a tuna mayonnaise sandwich filling.
Made with simple, tasty and healthy ingredients and full of protein so it's really good for you. And it keeps in the fridge for up to a week once made, so you can have lots of buns or salads with a dollop of tasty goodness added.
1 can Chickpeas, drained and slightly mashed
Half a small onion, finely diced
One stick of celery, chopped small
One clove of very finely chopped garlic, or garlic paste, or granules
A dash of lemon juice
Salt and Black pepper to taste.
You can play with the ingredients to vary it to suit your mood, I'm fancying a bit of curry powder in my next batch. And it goes with crunchy Iceberg lettuce so well.
We also used up a ready made quiche base, some eggs, the last of the leftover roasted vegetables and more salad stuff. Things are going down ... slowly but surely.
What a totally excellent idea! I am going to try that!ReplyDelete
Yum, I think I want t come to your place for lunch. I'll try the chickpea recipe.ReplyDelete
I do eat tuna occasionally but sometimes mix in mashed chickpeas. Also I like to use mashed avocado instead of the mayo, if I have one available. Add a little lemon juice and it's quite delish, imo. Now that our green onions are ready in the raised beds, I will add them also.ReplyDelete
I think I'd add one of those small cans of finely chopped black olives, drained. BTW I add them to our egg salad too!ReplyDelete
Hmmm, that sounds very interesting. I may have to buy a can of chickpeas the next time I am shopping.ReplyDelete
