High Protein Vegan Tuna Salad Sandwich – perfect snack or lunch on the go

therawberry vegan tuna sandwich_6369

A sandwich. On the hand. For a quick meal. But still healthy, tasty and full of important nutrients! Yes, sometimes one wishes that what is put on the plate was a request concert. But should I tell you something? That usually even works. Just a few minutes in the kitchen and this wonderful Tuna Salad Sandwich could be yours! And there’s no tuna in there! Vegan or not, I don’t like tuna at all. And that’s exactly why I didn’t dare to try vegan tuna salad for so long. What for?

But man oh man did I miss something! And so that you don’t feel the same way, I’ve just broken it down for you briefly and concisely.

Vegan Tuna?

Der vegane „Tunfisch“ ist in Wirklichkeit nichts anderes als Kichererbsen. Schön fein zerdrückt mit der Gabel. Daher kommt übrigens auch unser hoher Protein-Anteil des Sandwichs. Denn in Kichererbsen stecken bis zu 30% Proteine! 

Kleine Randnotiz: Kichererbse heißt auf portugiesisch übrigens Grão de bico. Was so viel heißt, wie Schnabel Korn. Weil die Kichererbse tatsächlich so eine kleine Spitze hat. Ist euch das schon mal aufgefallen?

Zurück zu unserem Sandwich. Schaut es euch an! Ich hab gleich zwei davon verspeist, weil es mir so gut geschmeckt hat! Nun seid ihr dran! Versucht es einmal, überzeugt euch selbst von dem ganz und gar nicht fischzig schmeckendem veganen Tunfisch! 

Ich freue mich immer über eure Kommentare & Feedback am Ende des Posts und eure Kreationen auf Instagram.
