Recipe Ingredients for Better-Than-Tuna Salad

3 1/2 cup Chickpeas (Garbanzo Beans, Bengal Gram), Mature Seeds, Canned
8 tbsp Original Vegenaise
1 medium (approx 2-3/4" long, 2-1/2" dia) Peppers, Sweet, Red
2 stalk, medium (7-1/2" - 8" long) Celery
2 medium Carrots
1/2 cup Spinach
1 tbsp Pickle Relish, Sweet

Recipe Directions for Better-Than-Tuna Salad

  1. Rinse and drain chickpeas well.

  2. Pulse the carrot, celery, and spinach in the food processor, until fine.

  3. Empty food processor and then process the chickpeas until they are a somewhat-fine flaky consistency. Do not over-process, or you?ll get hummus. The flakiness of the chickpeas resembles tuna in texture, which is important for this recipe.

  4. In a medium mixing bowl, stir carrot/celery/spinach mixture with mustard, and mayo and seasonings.

  5. Add flaked chickpeas and stir again to mix all well.

  6. Chill until ready to serve.
