    Chickpea Tuna Salad
    from Vegan Vittles

    by Jo Stepaniak

    Stuff this into whole wheat pita pockets or fresh whole tomatoes. A yummy, perfect treat on a hot summer day!

    1 can (15 or 16 ounces) chickpeas, rinsed and drained (about 1 3/4 cups)
    1/2 cup finely diced celery
    2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
    1 green onion, thinly sliced
    2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley (optional)
    2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    2 teaspoons well-drained pickle relish
    2 teaspoons brown mustard
    1/4 teaspoon paprika
    Salt and black pepper

    Coarsely chop the beans in a food processor or mash with a potato masher or fork. Stir in the remaining ingredients and mix well. Chill thoroughly before serving. Will keep refrigerated for a week in a closed container.

    Yield: 2 to 4 servings

    Yeah, this is good. I went vegetarian a couple of times and this was always a staple for me. Gotta have my tuna, and when I can't have my tuna, I gotta have my chickpeas. ;)
