Chickpea ‘Toona’ Sandwich

This sandwich tastes a lot like a traditional tuna sandwich but is completely vegan (just use a different Dempster’s bread variety if you want it 100% vegan as this one has honey)! You can pile it as high as you want with other veggies (we just suggest lettuce here), and you can easily transform it into a melt by only using one slice of bread per sandwich, topping with shredded cheese or vegan ‘cheese’, broiling and adding a handful of fresh arugula or spinach on top.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Servings 2


  • 4 slices Dempster’s 100% Whole Grains Honey & Oatmeal Bread
  • 6 leafs of green lettuce washed and dried
  • 1 15- oz can of chickpeas drained
  • 2 tablespoon fresh parsley roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoon mayo vegan if desired
  • juice of ½ lemon
  • 2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon capers
  • ½ cup diced celery
  • 2 scallions roughly chopped
  • 1 large or 2 small cloves of garlic, crushed
  • sea salt to taste


  1. Place 3 leafs of lettuce on two of the slices of bread (you can spread a light amount of mayo on each slice first if you wish).
  2. In a food processor combine all of the remaining ingredients and pulse until it is mixed but not smooth (you want to keep some texture in the filling).
  3. Spread one half of filling on top of the lettuce leaves and place the remaining two slices of bread on top of each prepared half.
