This is a complete, plant-based alternative “tuna-like” sandwich.

Although it tastes nothing like it, traditional sandwiches call for tuna mixed with a little bit of mayo, herb and lemon. Well, this one is similar, but we use chickpeas instead.

It’s a lot more delicious than other sandwiches — plus it’s a lot better for you.

If you don’t want bread, supplement it for keto bread slices, or go for the naked variety. Use a huge lettuce leave and put all your ingredients inside.

Like magic, you have a lettuce bowl of goodies.

Try this out for lunch tomorrow.
