Recipe: Mock Tuna Salad

Found this super simple recipe from the book 'Foods that cause you to lose weight' by Neal Barnard. 

Although I was not the one to make this (the boyfriend did that), I was the one to taste it and it got a thumbs up from me.

You can use this as a dip or as a sandwich spread, with lettuce and tomatoes.

What you will need:

1 can (400g) chickpeas
1 stalk of celery, finely chopped
1 medium carrot, grated (optional)
2 tsp Dijon mustard or vegan mayonnaise (you can get this in healthfood shops and even in some supermarkets like Coles)
1 tbsp sweet pickle relish
quarter tsp salt (optional)


Mash the chickpeas with a fork, leaving some chunks.
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix.
