  • 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


  1. Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Mash them in a bowl with a potato masher or fork.
  2. 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.
  3. I really like topping my chickpea tuna sandwiches with lettuce, tomato, and avocado, but feel free to add whatever you like!
