Vegan Tuna Salad Sandwiches

The best vegan tuna salad ever! Made with chickpeas, vegan mayonnaise, dill, capers, red onion and a secret 'fishy' ingredient!


  • 1 tin of chickpeas, drained
  • 4 tablespoons vegan mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple syrup

  • 1 1/2 teaspoon dulse flakes
  • 1/2 cup tinned sweet corn

  4. Mix well to combine.

  6. Finally, add the drained tinned sweetcorn and stir gently to incorporate.
  7. Serve tuna salad with crackers or sandwich between bread with veggies of your choice.
  8. Prepared tuna salad will last in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
