CHICKPEA “TUNA”

ChickpeaTuna1

My chickpea “tuna” is so simple to create but packed full of flavour. I’m always discovering new ways to enjoy chickpea “tuna”, it’s delicious on crackers, scrumptious as a sandwich filler and, I’m currently loving it in sushi.

Ingredients:

2 x 400g cans of chickpeas
1 red capsicum/bell pepper (finely chopped)
1 red onion (finely chopped)
4 gherkins/pickles (finely chopped)
2 nori sheets (finely crumbled)
1 tbsp. capers (finely chopped)
1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 tbsp. wholegrain mustard
1 red chilli (de-seeded and finely chopped)
the freshly squeezed juice of half a lemon
1-2 cloves of garlic (minced)
Himalayan pink salt and cracked black pepper (for seasoning)

Directions:

Step 1: in a medium mixing bowl, mash the chickpeas (note: a few half mashed chickpeas will give the mixture a nice texture)

Step 2: add all of the remaining ingredients to the mashed chickpeas, stir until well combined then refrigerate for 1-2 hours to allow all the flavours to infuse
