SO HOW'D IT GO?

AMAZING!!!! :)>>>  This was so darn good...I used diced pickles instead of relish and lots of garlic, added a bit of dulse flakes and mustard powder instead of mustard...

I am shocked!  I honestly thought this might taste similar to tuna salad, but once I made this I couldn't believe it!  It honestly tastes so similar to tuna salad, if I didn't know what was in it, I would think it was tuna salad.  I followed the recipe exactly and followed the other reviews and added a bit of chopped onion and celery.  Absolutely delicious ;)b

Also, the chick peas really need mashing or better yet, crushing.

The directions say to mash the chickpeas, no? That's what gives it the "tuna-like" texture & appearance.

Sorry, I guess I should have emphasized REALLY need mashing.  I mashed, just not enough, so I got chunks of bean that detracted from the texture.  Perhaps I should have said one needs to mash thoroughly...  ;)  This was my first time making and I will make again...  I also wonder about using more than one type of bean.  Will have to experiment.

Good, but could be better...  I made mine with the Vegan Mayo recipe on this site due to finding no mayo in the house...  I added a little lemon juice & pepper.  Crunch could be helped with celery and onion (had neither).  Also, the chick peas really need mashing or better yet, crushing.  Will have to play with this recipe, but it's a great start!

Great recipe!  Very quick and easy, and tastes very good. Sometimes I make a big container of it to keep in my fridge for quick sandwiches. 
I also added relish, omitted the green pepper, added lemon juice and celery seed.
Yay!

Mmmm. So good!!! I'm eating it right now on crackers, its the best. I changed it a bit and used regular mustard, celary seed, dill relish, garlic powder, salt, pepper, dill, and a little bit of lime juice. Mmm

This was really good. I made vegan tuna melts out of it with tofutti slices, bacos and crumpets. Only thing I would change is I prefer plain yellow mustard and dill relish.  ;)b

I tried this recipe tonight, and wow was it good! I added a tablespoon of dulse flakes (sea vegetable) and 1/2 teaspoon of celery seed. I used pickles instead of the sweet relish and yellow mustard instead of the brown mustard. It tasted like what I remember from childhood, only better, of course. ;) Thanks for this recipe! :)
