Emmy is here with the ingredients for our sandwich.
I wanted to do something  different for Bacon’s Shopping Around the World so here is a recipe for a ‘mock” tuna sandwich. Back in 2010 when I attempted to be a vegetarian ( no fish either), I found this recipe and it tastes just like tuna salad.
Ingredients-
1 can of chickpeas  $1.00
2 T of mayonaise $2.50/jar
1 T of pickle juice ( not sure of the cost)
1 celery stalk, finely chopped ( $1.99/package)
bread ( I use bad for you white bread, $1/loaf
Recipe-
Rinse and drain chickpeas, then mash them up.
add mayo, pickle juice and celery then spread on bread of your choice
  Looks just like tuna salad, doesn’t it?
Trust me, it tastes like it too.
