Chickpea Spread / Pate – Faux “Tuna”

One of my favourite quick vegan snacks to make is a chickpea spread/pate (or sometimes referred to as faux “tuna”, depending on how you flavour it). I’ve been eating it quite a lot lately, and it is very versatile.


Chickpea Spread / Pate - Faux "Tuna"
  • 1 can of low-sodium/no salt Chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • ⅓-1/2 sheet Nori (seaweed sheet)
  • 1 tsp dijon / regular mustard
  • ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • cayenne / red pepper flakes, to taste
  • 1½ tbs vegan mayo (or silken tofu)
  • 1-2 tbs nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar / white vinegar
  • 1 celery stalk, chopped into small cubes
  1. Add everything except for the celery into a food processor/blender and blend until mostly smooth. Sometimes it's nice to leave some semi-whole chickpeas to add texture. Stir in the chopped celery and you're done!
  2. Serve on top of salad, on crackers, in a rice paper or lettuce wrap, in a pita or tortilla, or in a nori sheet and make chickpea spread "sushi'... I like adding either chopped pickle or green olives into the mixture. Yummmmm. 🙂
