Vegetarian "tuna" salad!

I love this because it really reminds me of a tuna salad, and I really used to enjoy a good tuna sandwich, or tuna salad on a bed of lettuce! This is one my first vegetarian meals I ever made for myself years ago, and I think you will enjoy it to!

Things you'll need
  • 1 can of garbanzo beans(chick peas)
  • diced onion(small) 
  • 2 stalks of celery sliced down the middle then chopped
  • 2 tbsp. Mayo, vegan or a light version, whatever your preference
  • 1 tbsp sweet relish
  • 1/4 tsp mustard(I use guildens)
  • salt & Pepper to taste
  • 2 pinches of dry mustard(optional)
Step 1
In a food processor or with a fork mash up the beans leaving a few lumps, also dice up the onions and celery

Step 2
empty into a bowl, add in all other ingredients, mix well! 

Step 3
Put the mixture in the fridge for at least 1 hour to let it chill, serve as a sandwich any way you like! On a bed of lettuce, or in lettuce cups, or eat it plain! Add tomatoes on top, When I serve it on a salad I like to add a little oil and vinegar to the lettuce first then put the "tuna" on top!
