  • 1 tin chickpeas drained

  • 1 tbsp miso
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 celery stick chopped
  • 1/4 cup sweetcorn
  • generous pinch of sea salt
  • black pepper
  • 2 spring onions chopped
  • 4-6 tbsp vegan mayo add depending on taste preference.


  • Add the chickpeas to a large bowl and crumble in the tofu. Mash the chickpeas with a fork then add the nori, celery, sweetcorn, onion, garlic, 'tuna', gherkin, vinegar, miso, capers, mustard, salt, pepper and lemon juice. Mix together coating all the ingredients. now add the mayo then mix in. Pop in the fridge to chill for at least 30 minutes. Enjoy!



Tip: Try not to over mash the chickpeas. The course texture adds to the overall enjoyment of the salad. To make nori flakes put a sheet of nori in your blender and blend until you have a course powder. You can buy nori flakes in specialist stores. Alternatively finely cut into very small strips with scissors.

    Found this recipe on I messed up and used soft tofu instead and it ended up being a watery spread of some sort, but man, it still tasted awesome! I’m gonna freeze these so I can make a spread out of this cuz it’s delicious. Will definitely be on the rotation in this household. On a side note, the miso (paste) was a little hard to mix and spread, so maybe I’ll dilute it with some water next time? Thanks for sharing!
