You only need 5 ingredients and 10 minutes to make this vegan tuna. It has a fishy flavor thanks to nori flakes, is super healthy and also low in fat.

Ingredients

  • 1 nori sheet
  • 2 and 1/2 cups canned or cooked chickpeas (400 g), drained and rinsed
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Blend the nori sheet in a powerful blender until you get nori flakes. You can also finely chop the nori sheet with a knife. Set aside.
  2. Add the chickpeas to a bowl and mash them with a fork.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients, stir and mash again until well combined. If you want to save some time, use a food processor instead, although don’t over-blend.
  4. Keep the vegan tuna in a sealed container in the fridge for 4 to 5 days.

Notes

  • The nori sheet is not optional, as we need it to get a fishy flavor. I guess you could use other seaweed, but I haven’t tried it myself.
  • Tahini can be replaced by 1 to 2 tablespoons of oil (I’d use extra virgin olive oil).
  • Feel free to use lime juice instead of the lemon juice.
