Better-Than-Tuna Chickpeas (Vegan)

Well, I have never exactly loved tuna salad sandwiches. The taste of sea foods are not usually my favorite, so it makes sense that when I was served sandwiches as a youngin, I never chose tuna for its flavor.

Even though I never liked the taste, I fondly remember the texture of tuna salad sandwiches I ate. It was uniquely soft and crunchy, unlike peanut-butter-and-jelly’s strictly soft or club sandwiches’ strictly crunchy texture. It held itself together; the pieces didn’t fall out or slide around. And I have always been one to mix my foods together to achieve that perfect blend of textures and tastes, so the tuna sandwich certainly had potential. I just needed to tweak that flavor a bit. Who is with me there?
