Chickpea Tuna

8:33 AM

I love tuna. Wild caught, canned goodness, is one of my favorite things to add to my daily salads, thrown in a wrap, or even make into tuna burgers.

I saw Hot For Food make this chickpea tuna and I was super intrigued. I'm trying to eat less and less poultry and fish from week to week and this is a great substitute for my tuna cravings at lunch!
