guess who’s back?! Rachael!! As I’m on my way home from Michigan (BOOOO!) I figured I would give you guys another guest post to look forward to. She did me a huge favor and wrote up another guest post for me
Hello there, The Little Spoon Blog readers! I’m Rachael, I blog at Ready to Get Sweaty
, and I’m so excited to post here today while Katie is relaxing and soaking up the sun.
For today’s post Katie told me I could write whatever I wanted, so that means you are getting one of my new favorite recipes, Vegan Tuna Salad. When I made the decision to become a vegetarian 4 years ago I knew I’d miss chicken salad, egg salad and more recently tuna salad (I recently added fish to the list of things I don’t eat). Until a few months ago I haven’t been able to find anything that resembles the tasty “salad” sandwiches I used to crave. So whether you are a vegetarian, vegan or hearty meat eater, I hope you give this yummy recipe a try.
Vegan Tuna Salad
1 can (15 oz) chickpeas
2 celery stalks
2 T relish (I like the one with mustard and relish – it adds a little something extra)
2 t nutritional yeast
1 T soy sauce
2 T vegan mayo (you can most certainly use regular mayo)
1 T spicy mustard (optional)
Black pepper (to taste)
- Pulse chickpeas in a food processor a few times, but be careful to not puree them, just slightly mashed.
- Chop celery and combine in bowl with chickpeas.
- Add remaining ingredients, stirring to combine.
- Add black pepper to taste, stir, and ENJOY!
Another option is to omit the relish and substitute fresh herbs, such as dill, parsley or even a fresh squeeze of lemon juice. I’ve even added in chopped carrots for some extra crunch. Use in sandwiches, roll-ups, lettuce cups, or serve as an appetizer spread for crackers.
Trust me, you will love this recipe!
Xo – Rachael
Looks like I’ve got a new recipe to try out.. maybe Meg
(insert link) would be interested in tackling this recipe for her next healthy cooking attempt…
I hope everyone had a great week – I’ll be back in Buffalo soon and you can expect a new post from me in the next couple of days! Tomorrow is all about getting back to work and getting back into the swing of things.
