Vegan “ no tuna " salad recipe with mashed chickpeas, creamy avocado, scallions and lime. No mayo ever!
Drain the chickpeas and reserve some of the water.
In the bowl of a small food processor chop the chickpeas with a little bit of the reserved water if needed until a rustic texture is achieved. Keep in mind that you don’t want a smoothie, so use the pulse button when doing this.
Transfer to a medium mixing bowl together with the scallions, lime juice, chili pepper and cilantro. Give it a good stir.
Slice the avocado in half, discard the pit and carefully scoop the flesh out. Add it to the bowl with the chickpeas and season with the sea salt. Combine well. Taste and add more lime juice or sea salt to your taste.
Serve as a dip or make a faux tuna salad sandwich with your favorite whole-grain bread and fresh herbs.
