Spoiler Alert – I am not Vegan. I am not even vegetarian, though I try to infuse my diet with as many plant based foods as possible on a daily basis.

I also love variety, and am always looking at ways to increase the nutrient value in my foods. This CHICK PEA SMASH is like a vegan ‘mock’ tuna salad and is amazing in a sandwich, or you can plop it on top of a your favourite green salad.

Either way, it will provide you with 11 grams of protein, and an additional 6 grams of fibre, which is great for blood sugar balance.

Plus, it’s scrumptious. It really is. Try it!


What you need:

  • 1 can chickpeas
  • ½ cup sunflower seeds
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • ¼ red onion
  • ½ cup parsley chopped
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp vegan mayo

What you do:

Place all ingredients in food processor and blend until chopped, not pureed, on ‘pulse’ function.

Enjoy by the spoonful, between 2 slices of your favourite bread, or on top of a your favourite green salad.
