Vegan Chickpea Tuna and Mozzarella Melt
This inexpensive, simple and easy recipe is a great lunch option. You can add vegan cheese, sweetcorn or salad if you would prefer.
Chickpeas are a great alternative to meat because they are high in plant based protein. They contain a variety of vitamins and minerals and are high in fibre.
Total time: 10 mins
400g tin chickpeas
2 tbsp capers roughly chopped
2 tbsp sundried tomatos finely chopped
Half red onion finely chopped
Half lemon juice
1tbsp olive oil
2tbsp vegan mayo (optional) I used Follow your Heart Veganaise
2tsp fresh parsley chopped (optional)
Salt and pepper
Vegan cheese – I used Morrison’s mozzarella style slices
Serve in a bread roll - I used an olive ciabatta
Mix the chickpeas, capers, tomatoes, onion, lemon juice and olive oil together in a bowl and season with salt and pepper (bear in mind the capers are already quite salty).
Mash together using a fork to break down the chickpeas and the capers. The mixture can be rough and still have lumps in it.
Add the vegan mayo if you want a more creamy consistency.
Fill your bread roll, top with the vegan cheese and grill until the cheese is melted.
