This chickpea tuna sandwich was created as part of my back-to-school lunch ideas I posted to YouTube recently. I want to make sure you’re bringing healthy and tasty lunches to school, especially ones that don’t stink up the whole cafeteria! Remember when you would bring tuna to school? Thanks, Mom. Now you can feel good about what you’re packing and enjoy it, too.
This is ridiculously easy to make, and can be used on sandwiches all week long! If you need variety in ya life, you could use different toppings on each chickpea tuna sandwich to keep things interesting. Looking for more lunch inspiration? Check out my 5 easy vegan back to school bento boxes!

I guarantee you’ll love this simple and delicious vegan chickpea “tuna” better than the real thing!
- 1 x 15 oz can chickpeas
- 1/3 C finely chopped dill pickle
- 1/3 C finely chopped celery
- 1/4 C finely chopped red onion
- 1/3 C vegan mayonnaise
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp Old Bay seasoning
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Mash them in a bowl with a potato masher or fork.
Add the remaining ingredients and combine well. Store in the fridge for up to 5 days and make up sandwiches as you need for the week.
I really like topping my chickpea tuna sandwiches with lettuce, tomato, and avocado, but feel free to add whatever you like!
