When I became vegetarian the thing I missed most was fish. It was easily something I had often and still to this day miss it dearly. One of the best things I would always have in my pantry was canned tuna. It was so versatile and went with everything I could ever imagine. That being said no longer having this as an option really made me experiment and try my best to have those old classics, but reimagined.

A friend of mine told me she had this chickpea tuna salad and the cogs in my brain started turning. She also suggested using greek yogurt vs. a mayo and I was hooked. This turned out so amazingly delicious I honestly couldn’t believe it. So full of flavour and texture, it was amazing. This is the perfect thing for lunches for the week as the chickpeas will hold for a long time without sacrificing any flavour or even bringing it to a park, without that fishy smell or concern of spoilage.

The best part of this recipe is all of it! I hope you enjoy!
