Grounded green beans taste surprisingly close to tuna, so you can make a vegan tuna sandwich by tossing them with nori and your favourite tuna salad ingredients (such as carrots and onions).


  • ½ sheet nori (dried seaweed), torn into small pieces
  • 1 (15-ounce) can of no-salt-added chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • ¼ cup vegan mayonnaise
  • ⅓ cup minced or finely grated carrot
  • ⅓ cup finely diced celery
  • 2 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • black pepper to taste


  • 8 slices whole wheat bread, toasted
  • ¼ cup vegan mayonnaise
  • 8 lettuce leaves
  • 8 tomato slices


  • Step 1 Pulse nori in a blender until it’s a fine powder. Set aside to let dust settle.
  • Step 2: Mash chickpeas with a sturdy fork or a small-holed potato masher (chickpeas slip through larger, zigzag-type mashers) in a large bowl until most are broken up. Do not overmash them; they should retain some texture.
  • Step 3 Stir in mayo and mash a little more. Stir in nori powder, carrot, celery, onion, dill, salt, and pepper. Cover and chill at least 15 minutes or up to 3 days.
  • Step 4 For the sandwiches, slather toast with mayo (about 1 1/2 teaspoons per slice). Layer salad, lettuce, and tomato between toast slices. Cut sandwiches in half diagonally.
