|Mock Tuna Salad on Romaine Boats|
1 15 oz can garbanzo beans
1/4 medium onion, diced
1/3 c bell pepper, diced (green and red)
2 1/2 tbsp mayonnaise, low fat (vegan or non-vegan)
2 tbsp sweet pickle relish
1/2 tbsp liquid aminos (or soy sauce)
seasoning (garlic powder, pepper, paprika, sweetener)
Drain and rinse the can of garbanzo beans. Mash the garbanzo beans with a fork (some chunks are fine) and combine all the ingredients. Mix well and season accordingly (a little bit of agave/sugar really brings this recipe together). Chill before serving.
- Double the recipe and store in a glass jar to use at your convenience. The recipe will last about a week.
- Feel free to add any other veggies you would like (shredded carrots, green onions, etc.)
- For an even healthier alternative to the traditional tuna salad sandwich, serve this salad on whole romaine lettuce leaves.
