Recipe test: Happy Herbivore "Tuna" Salad

I picked up two new books at the library on Friday. Please don't laugh (like Craig did) at the fact that I got the Al Roker book. :) I really enjoy reading autobiographies where the author overcomes their lifelong struggle with weight, like Al has. So far, it is interesting to hear about his relationship with food.

The Happy Herbivore is a great cookbook and I flagged about three recipes I want to try. I paged through it over the weekend and found a quick recipe to make for dinner tonight. I had previously checked out Happy Herbivore Abroad from the library and I think I prefer that title over this one.

Lindsay's chickpea based "tuna" salad sounded delicious.

This recipe was super easy to make. I omitted some of the ingredients I didn't have on hand, such as onion powder and kelp and I used mayonnaise instead of vegan mayo. The nutritional yeast was a great addition to this recipe.

We had a pretzel bun that was on it's last legs, so I put the salad on that. It was delicious and I can't wait to have it for lunch tomorrow.

Dessert was the fruit I am addicted to lately, a sliced pear. I may have snuck in a few pieces of toblerone too. :)
