  • 3 slices Bread


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 0.5 cup fresh basil
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 0.25 cup toasted pinenuts

‘Tuna’ Mousse

  • 1.5 cups cooked chickpeas

  • 1 tbsp capers
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 0.25 cup dill
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard

  • Begin by preparing the pesto. Combine olive oil, fresh basil, fresh parsley, garlic clove, lemon juice, toasted pinenuts, and salt & pepper in a blender. Blend until you achieve a smooth consistency.
  • Next, prepare the ‘tuna’ mousse. In a food processor, combine cooked chickpeas, silken tofu, nori sheet, capers, lemon juice, dill, dijon mustard, Nooch, and salt. Blend until smooth.
  • Now, assemble the sandwich. Spread a generous amount of ‘tuna’ mousse on a slice of bread. Add sliced avocado, tomato, and optional broccoli sprouts. Spread pesto on another slice of bread and place it on top.
  • Repeat the process for the remaining sandwiches. Enjoy your vegan ‘Tunacado’ sandwich immediately, or store in the refrigerator for later.
