Vegan “Tuna” Sandwich Another Hearts of Palm Recipe

Hearts of palm is probably one of the most versatile ingredients you can use in substitution for seafood, if you are eating more of a plant-based diet. I have used hearts of palm for crabcakes. My vegan crabcakes won me the People’s Choice Award for the Georgia Seafood Festival last year, so I guess I can call them Award winning Vegan Crabcakes, lol. 😃

Today I was in the mood for a good tuna fish sandwich and I decided, well let’s use my hearts of palm and some chickpeas and see what happens, this is a very trendy recipe, so you can find it anywhere on the internet, but here’s my take on it. I hope you enjoy it and remember to always Set the Table with Love.

1/4 cup vegan mayo

1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
