Choona sammie or rather chickpea “tuna.”

Does it taste like tuna?

No.

Will it satisfy your craving for a tuna sandwich?

Maybe…

This is one of the reasons I don’t like substitutes. I’d rather unlearn the meals I grew up eating and just incorporate new meals that have no relation to what I remember.

Maybe you feel differently…

I’d much rather call this a mashed chickpea sandwich.

Let’s try using it in a sentence, shall we?

we’ll start with what we remember…

“Hon, would you like a tuna sandwich?”

“NO.”

“Okay, how about a mashed chickpea sandwich?”

“Yes, please!”

See what I mean? So much better. I immediately know what’s in it: chickpeas.
