Vegan “Tuna” Salad Sub Sandwich

You guys!!

For years my Dad has always made this amazing looking tuna sub sandwich almost weekly. Seriously, it could be photographed for a magazine. It always looks do amazing, but I don’t like tuna, even when I ate meat/fish, so I never tried it.

But, it always looks so good.

Well, last night I tried making my own, vegan, version of it and wow, it came out awesome. And, it was surprisingly super easy.

Open a can of garbanzo beans, drain and rinse under cold water. Then, pulsate them quickly through a food processor, just to get them broken up. Transfer to a bowl, add vegan mayo (I use Earth Balance MindfulMayo), a little bit of fresh lemon juice, sea salt and pepper to fit your taste. Stir really well.

It’s that easy!

To make a sub like the one pictured here, put the mixture on a long roll, top with shredded lettuce thinly sliced tomato and thinly sliced onion. Sprinkle salt, pepper and oregano over the top. Then drizzle with olive oil and red wine vinegar. Top with the other half of the roll, cut in half and serve.
