This is a great one for when you are super unmotivated but find yourself with a family to feed. Or superunmotivated with just yourself to feed. Either way, it will take you about 10 minutes to throw together and my unscientific uncontrolled studies have shown than 100% of tuna-eaters find this to be a great substitution (without Flipper’s friends on your conscience). I invented it while on a 3 week vegan, gluten-free, animal-free, sugar-free, caffeine-free cleanse (don’t ask).
My kid likes this, my omnivorous huband likes this, even my dog likes this. Mash it together, throw it on some bread on in a bowl of lettuce and you’ve got yourself a nutritious meal packed with calcium, iron, fiber, B vitamins, and protein.
FLIPPER APPROVED CHICKPEA “TUNA” SALAD – serves 4
Make Ahead and Make it Easy
There isn’t much you can do to make this recipe easier. Whip up a batch and use it in sandwiches for work and school. r, make a tuna melt and enjoy with a bowl of soup.
- 2 14 oz cans chickpeas, drained
- 1/2 cup vegan or regular mayonaise
- 1 stalk celery, chopped

- 2 Tbs red onion, chopped
- 1 tsp dried dill
- 1 tsp salt

How to make it
- Place the chickpeas in a bowl with the mayo and smash with a potato masher or a fork. You will be very effective at this if you’ve had a long day at work or your kid is screaming in the background.
- Once the texture is to your liking, add in all the other ingredients, adjust the flavor as needed, and you’re done. See? I told you it was easy.
