Vegan Chickpea Cranberry Tuna…OMG!
Raise your hand if you grew up eating tuna sandwiches! I loved tuna growing up but when I went vegan I obviously had to stop eating it. This vegan chickpea cranberry tuna is going to be your new favorite meal. I know there are a lot of vegan tuna recipes out there but I promise you this one is seriously the best – the cranberries really add a nice touch.
I like to meal prep this tuna and keep a big container in the fridge for the week. My boyfriend LOVES it and we both like to add it to our lunches or eat it with crackers or veggies for a snack.
This recipe is:
This vegan chickpea cranberry tuna isn’t made with any crazy ingredients – don’t worry! A healthy vegan diet is made up of whole heart healthy, unprocessed food like the ingredients here!
This recipe is literally SO easy. You add all of the ingredients into a food processor…pulse a few times…and that’s it! The easiest 5 minute lunch ever. Toast a slice of bread, add this to a salad or even munch on it with some crackers.
Chickpea Tuna Sandwich
I used some of the tuna to make into a sandwich for my boyfriend – HE GOBBLED IT UP! To the sandwich I also added onions and lettuce and used 100% whole wheat tuscan bread but you can use whatever bread you like. Ezekiel bread would work great to for this.
I lightly toasted the bread and make this sandwich in under 5 minutes. Simple yet so yummY!
You can also choose to eat this open faced with a little extra dill and lightly toasted bread….yes please! I’d like to also note that this meal is amazing for keeping you full – the plant-protein from the chickpeas will keep you satisfied for hours!
Are you hungry yet?
In addition, I personally like to add the tuna to a spinach salad with a little balsamic vinaigrette..sooo good!!
