Mock Chicken Salad

I used to love chicken and tuna salad sandwiches, but I’ve have had to do without since I happily gave up animal foods years ago.  Sure, there are plenty of faux-chicken and even tuna products out there but they are not what I’d call healthy since they are highly processed and contain oil.  Well, thanks to Lindsey Nixon, The Happy Herbivore, I got the idea for this tasty sandwich filling.  Her recipe is for tuna, but I’ve made a few changes to make mine more like a chicken-salad.  Both of them use….wait for it…..smashed garbanzo beans!! Weird, right? I thought so too, but seriously people, it’s good!  And since the mayo is fat free, it truly is a guilt-free, healthy treat!  Try it and let me know what you think!

Served on sprouted whole grain bread (I love Trader Joe's brand), or on top of a bed of lettuce, this mixture made with smashed chickpeas is truly delicious and reminiscent of the way I remember chicken-salad tasting - without the grossness.
