When you make a meal you of course want everyone to love it!  Well, my Not Tuna Salad Sandwich is a hit with everyone I have ever given them to!

NOT Tuna Salad Sandwich

I have tried several different types of beans with these sandwiches but our family loves garbanzo beans the most (chickpeas) because of the taste and texture.  Even my cat loves garbanzo beans!

If you miss the original tuna sandwich flavor Kelp or dulse helps to give them a bit more fishy flavor.  Of course it does not taste exactly like tuna fish but it is close enough for those who truly loved fish and far enough away for those who don’t.  You can omit it and they still taste awesome.

I enjoy my NOT Tuna Salad Sandwich on sourdough bread that has been lightly toasted.  If toasted bread rips up your mouth up, just toast one side and turn the toasted part inside the sandwich.  You still get the amazing crunch but with the soft gentle part on the outside.

Serve this sandwich with Crispy Baked Fries for a hearty meal.

  • Veganise is my preferred store bought vegan mayo for these sandwiches.  If you prefer another option visit my Substitutions page for suggestions.
  • I like to make my own dill relish by chopping up Bubbies or Valasic Farmer’s Garden.   These brands have amazing pickles that do not have artificial colors or flavors in them.
  • I like the taste and  of Main Coast’s brand of Kelp or Dulse  flakes for these sandwiches.  This brand is organic, cruelty free and tastes great.  Plus it has iodine in it.
