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?
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
LOL, I went to make this, I haven't made it in years and I just had a taste for it and found not nary a can o' chick peas, so now I am making a pot of beans from scratch to make this recipe! It's that good!!!!
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
