Happy Fourth of July!

Last night I had to prepare my meals for this weekend as I will be going away for the holiday! I am very very excited for a long and relaxing weekend. Unfortunately, I won't be posting any new items for 'Friday Funday'. However, I am hoping to make up for that on Monday.

Here is a new recipe I tried from Let's just say several people have tried it and would like to have the recipe! 

Mock Tuna Salad

15 oz chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 large carrots, grated
1/2 large cucumber, diced
2 stalks of celery, minced
1/2 red onion, diced
1 or 2 tsp of black pepper
salt to taste
2 to 3 T Veganaise (I used 2 and thought it was plenty, but season to your liking)
1 or 2 T yellow mustard (I used 1 T to not overpower the flavor)
1 tsp paprika
2 T sweet relish

Mash the chickpeas in a separate bowl with a fork or potato masher, until 80% are mashed. Combine chickpeas with all other ingredients in a large bowl, stir until well combined. Chill for 20 minutes for the flavors to combine. Serve cold alone, on Ezekiel bread, Bibb lettuce or wrap. Enjoy =)


 Have a great holiday weekend! Check in on Monday....I have a new cookbook (it's a surprise) and will be trying a recipe from there!

  1. I was one of the tasters, and this un-tuna salad is YUMMY. It would also be great with some dried currants for those who crave sweets!
