Out Of Tuna?

Mock Tuna Salad with Chickpeas

This is not so much a recipe as a guideline. Use tinned chickpeas for convenience or cook up some dried chickpeas in a pressure cooker if you’re so inclined.

For 1 generous lunch portion I used:
  • 150g cooked chickpeas, mashed roughly
  • 1 stick of celery, chopped
  • 1 small tomato, chopped
  • approx 1 tblsp mayo (I used Hellmans)
  • approx 1 tblsp natural yoghurt
  • freshly ground black pepper and coarse salt to taste (I used Maldon sea salt)
  • 1-2 tblsp flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • good splash of freshly squeezed lemon juice
The Steps:
  • Mix all of the ingredients together, adjusting quantities to your taste.
  • Serve on lettuce, crackers, pita bread or whatever else takes your fancy.
The Variations:
  • I meant to add some finely chopped red onion to this, but I forgot. I’ll do that next time.
