Chickpea and Red onion mayo sandwich

Ok its not Tuna, but my tuna sandwich was tuna, red onion and mayo, in which the red onion dominated and so this swap to crushed chickpeas and vegan mayo really works and is 90% as good in terms of flavour and texture and is plant based.

4 ingredients

Simply empty a rinsed can of chickpea into a bowl and crush with a fork

crush the chickpeas with a fork

Finely chop half a red onion and add to the bowl and stir in a spoonful of vegan mayo

add a squeeze of lemon and lots of black pepper. put the filling into 2 slices of granary bread and serve.
