I don't use any relish at all. And I add a touch of curry powder



It's very versatile

!!!! This is fabulous! I can't believe how delicious this is, it tastes eerily like tuna (minus the yucky fishy taste). This is a keeper, I'll be making this several times a month for sure.

I thought "the yucky fish taste" was what tuna was all about? So is it more the TEXTURE of tuna without the actual tuna taste?

I think many people associate "tuna" flavor with the onions, celery, mayo, etc that is in this, seeing as that's how people often prepare tuna.

Ah! Makes sense. So maybe the recipe should be called "onion-mayo-relish-celery" salad? Nah, doesn't sound NEARLY as much fun!

Yeah it's about the spices for me! But, the flavor of the chickpeas does remind me of tuna, kind of. It's hard to explain. All I know is that I LOVE it and my mom ended up eating almost all of it, so now I will be making more. I might have to make double or triple batches of this stuff.



I'm not mad at my mom for eating it because I'm optimistic that this mock tuna will help convert her from her pescetarian ways

I finally got around to trying this and have made it twice in the last week.



I've got my mom hooked on it too.



It tastes nothing like real tuna to me, though, which is a good thing. I never liked tuna sandwiches as an omni.

Does anyone have a decent picture of this that I can use for an upcoming article?

I made some today. I just mashed the beans up with a potato masher. Got a nice texture I must say. I also added kelp flakes to give it a "fishy" taste. I think next time I'll use Dulse flakes, since the kelp was a sample and kinda subtle. I think the dulse will be a bit stronger of a flavor.

But it's got a nice texture. I think next time I will use a touch of lemon juice to tang it. I didn't add onion, I think I may add that next time. Maybe some siracha or garlic powder, since that's what I used to do with Tuna when I was omni.

Enjoying it with some crackers since we're out of bread
