TuNori Sandwiches

If your house is as crazy as mine has been this past week you are looking for quick and easy meals. Our solution tonight: vegetable soup and sandwiches. It was a pretty easy decision since we still had the tasty bread I made last night. The question was: what to put on that bread to make sandwiches. I don't really miss tuna salad, but if you do then this is the recipe for you. I can't remember where I got this from--I think is was on a Vegan Lunch Box discussion forum about canned TuNo. It's a great way to enjoy nori and all its goodness without having to make sushi.


INGREDIENTS
- 1 can of chickpeas, rinsed and well drained
- 1/2 cup of vegenaise (or more, depending on what consistency you are going for)
- 1 sheet of toasted nori seaweed
- 1 tsp kelp granules (optional)
- salt and pepper to taste

METHOD
1. Rip nori into smaller pieces and place in a food processor. Process until finely chopped.
2. Add in chickpeas and pulse until coarsely chopped (be sure to pulse--otherwise it will become a paste.
3. Place chickpeas in a bowl. Add in vegenaise, kelp, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Keep cold until ready to serve.
