"Chuna" salad! Yum!!

So I came up with this recipe the other day, and to my surprise, it was scrumptious! I call it "chuna" because it is reminiscent of tuna, but is made with chickpeas! I've seen other recipes for mock tuna using chickpeas, but this one is tailored to my tastes!

You will need:

1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed or about 1.5 cups home cooked
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon stone ground mustard
2 Tablespoons Vegenaise
salt and pepper to taste (you might need a little salt if you use chickpeas that are packed in water)

Place all ingredients in a bowl and mash with a potato masher! Easy as that! You can use the chuna in a wrap, with crackers, in a sandwich or just on it's own. Feel free to add other seasonings/spices such as garlic powder, onion power, curry etc.  Enjoy!

Good Day!

So today is day 1 of Vegan Momma on a Mission! I am going to try my best to keep this blog updated, but of course, my family will always come first, so there may be gaps here and there! I apologize in advance:) My goal is to share yummy recipes, both created by me, and found elsewhere (books, websites, other blogs), and also try to share my experiences of bringing up a vegan family. I want to make is easier for people to maintain a vegan diet for themselves, and their families.
