Vegan Tuna Salad Sandwich

Wow, this vegan tuna is even better than the real tuna, amazing! Whoever came out with the idea of using chickpea as tuna is a genius! Can be served cold or hot, up to you. Best of all, this recipe is extremely high in fibre and protein, and low in fat, especially if you try out my Homemade Vegan Mayonnaise! This dish is great on its own as salad or as filling for whole wheat bread and croissant.
