Perfect tuna-less sandwich

Never in my life, I thought that I would call these little garbanzo salad sliders, tuna-less sandwich.

But when you try them this name will make perfect sense to you. These perfect tuna-less sandwiches are made with a very healthy and delicious garbanzo (chickpea) salad. The best part of this salad is that you can use it to prepare sandwiches or to stuff an avocado. Or maybe you just like your tuna salad with crackers, so this version of tuna-less salad will be perfect for you.

I also love this garbanzo salad because it is perfect on the go or to put in the kid’s lunchbox.

And as any good tuna salad when you prepare it in advance the flavors get better, for a picnic take in a glass container and serve it with crackers (homemade crackers are always better), crudités or a ready to eat tuna-less sandwich.

This tuna-less salad can be made with canned chickpeas or home-cooked ones. I use my  INSTAPOT and they come out fully cooked in about 40 min if I not soaked or 20 if soaked overnight.

I am not much of a fan of chick peas, but I am still tempted to give this a try.

I love the idea of tuna-less salad, especially for a Meatless Monday meal! I just pinned your recipe. I am thinking that next Monday this salad is going to be lovely over a bed of greens and fresh vegetables. Mmm…

I have been looking for alternatives to using tuna and I know my kids would love this. They love chickpeas and we tend to make a lot of homemade hummus and other things with them. I will give them a try and may have to purchase an instapot!

These sandwiches look so good and I can’t believe how easy they are to make. It’s also good that they have alternative ingredients for those on modified diets.

Chickpeas are a very strong taste, just like tuna, I can see how some people will definitely enjoy this substitution.
