This Easy Vegan Sweetcorn Tuna Sandwich is simply amazing. It’s so easy to make and tastes remarkably close to actual tuna. It’s wonderful on sandwiches for a vegan tuna salad sandwich!
Here in the UK there is this favorite combo with sweetcorn and tuna sandwiches. So I decided to ‘veganise’ this favorite combo!
It’s incredibly easy to make, simply mix a couple of ingredients together and you are done!
The base of this recipe is mashed chickpeas and I think you can already guess that mashed chickpeas will not equal the texture of real tuna in any universe.
However, when you add all kinds of deliciousness to your mashed chickpeas, like vegan mayo (of course), finely chopped nori, lemon juice, chopped capers, garlic powder, nutritional yeast, dijon mustard, tamari, and white vinegar, basically all the ingredients that you would normally recognize when eating regular fish.
It makes an incredibly tasty filling meal, for not a lot of calories!
Where do I Get A Good Vegan Mayo?
STORING AND FREEZING:
Leftovers keep very well in a covered container in the fridge for 2-3 days. Just give it a good stir again before serving in case any slight separation has occurred (it’s okay if this happens).
You can also freeze some if you like. Just freeze in a freezer-safe container and when you want to use it again, thaw it in the fridge.
