Chickpea No-Tuna Salad with Sauerkraut

This Chickpea No-Tuna Salad with Sauerkraut is my perfect go-to recipe when I have some extra sauerkraut on hand, usually after making my Veggie Reuben Sandwiches.

It’s ridiculously easy to make as a quick healthy meal or snack, and you can enjoy in a sandwich, tortilla, on a bed of lettuce, or with some crackers. So many options.

To begin, in a large bowl, add the chickpeas and using a potato masher, smash the chickpeas until most are smashed, with some remaining whole. Note: you can also peel the chickpeas first if you desire and discard the skins. This will make for a prettier dish, but it takes so much time, I generally skip this step. =)

Next, add the chopped broccoli, red cabbage, red onion and sauerkraut. Stir together until combined.

In a small bowl, combine the vegan mayo, sauerkraut juice, mustard, lemon juice, almond milk, maple syrup and all spices. Stir. Then pour the liquid mixture into the chickpea/veggie mix and stir until all is combined.

This recipe will make about 4 1/2 to 5 cups of chickpea salad (3/4 cup per serving).

You can serve it in a sandwich, topped with your favorite veggies (I like red onion, sprouts, tomatoes, cucumbers, etc.), OR on a bed of lettuce, wrapped in a spinach tortilla, or used as a spread for crackers. There are really so many options for this super healthy, quick meal. =)

Keep in an airtight container in the fridge for 5-6 days.
