I like to call it, tu-not:


  • 1 x 14oz can of organic garbanzo beans (I like Eden Organics, they’re BPA free and delicious)
  • 5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • 1 stalk organic celery, finely chopped
  • Pinch of cayenne or chilli flakes
  • Sea salt to taste
  • 1 sprig (5-7 leaves) flat leaf parsley, finely chopped

OPTIONAL: Add a pinch of curry, dried currants, and toasted almonds for an extra zip of flavour and texture.


  • Drain and rinse garbanzo beans
  • Mash beans to desired texture in a mixing bowl (I like to use a potato masher)
  • Add remaining ingredients and mix well

And there you have it – load that tasty vegan tuna salad goodness up on a sandwich, wrap, or avocado.
