This Chickpea No-Tuna Salad with Sauerkraut is ridiculously easy to make as a quick healthy meal or snack. You can enjoy it in a sandwich, tortilla, on a bed of lettuce, or enjoy with some crackers. So many options. =)


  • 2 15-ounce cans chickpeas, drained
  • 1 cup finely chopped broccoli
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped red cabbage
  • 1/2 medium red onion - finely diced (1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 cup sauerkraut - chopped + 2 tablespoons juice from jar
  • 1/3 cup vegan mayo - I like Organic Vegenaise
  • 2 tablespoons whole grain mustard
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon Spanish paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • small pinch cayenne pepper


  • In a large bowl, add chickpeas and using a potato masher, smash the chickpeas until most smashed, with some remaining whole. Add the broccoli, red cabbage, red onion and sauerkraut.
  • In a small bowl, combine the mayo, sauerkraut juice, mustard, lemon juice, almond milk, maple syrup and all spices. Stir.
  • Pour the liquid mixture into the chickpea mix and stir until combined. Serve. This recipe makes a total of about 4 1/2 cups. Serving size: 3/4 cup.


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