Light Mock “Tuna” Salad Sandwich

This is the lighter version of the mock tuna salad. While I don’t typically count calories, this sandwich only has 295 calories  so it’s perfect to pair with a vegetable soup or another side dish. It also makes a great snack spread onto crackers. It’s soy and gluten-free too for all of those with food allergies/intolerances. I will be posting a heartier version in the coming weeks for a tuna melt and also a nicoise salad 🙂

Makes 2 servings / sandwiches
What you’ll need:
  • 1/2 cup garbanzo beans (or chick peas)
  • 4 slices gluten-free bread
  • 1- 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 1 tbsp chopped white onion (optional)
  • 1 roma tomato or 10 cherry tomatoes
  • A handful of baby mixed greens
  • 1 tbsp veganaise (I use soy-free)
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp capers
  • A few dashes of dried dill spice
  • A few dashes of salt and pepper, to taste
To make:
Toast gluten-free bread. In a small bowl, mash garbanzo beans with a fork.
