Do you even have those days when you know you are craving a particular taste but you don't know exactly what? I knew I was hungry for something fresh and crunchy but being quite cool outside I knew I wasn't in the mood for salad.
I had a picked up Isa Does It from the library on Friday and was flicking through the pages when the solution jumped out at me: Chicky 'Tuna' Salad Sandwich. Being vegetarian I'm not generally a fan of recipes that are trying to imitate meat but the look of this one had me checking through the fridge and pantry for the necessary ingredients.
The only real change I made to the recipe was to use egg mayo rather than the vegan kind. The suggestion in the book was to have it with lettuce and tomato but the avocados are looking too good at the moment. Next time (yes, there will be a next time) I will be organised and rehydrate dried chick peas to give the spread a crunchier texture.
Mr Mouse also had the winning idea that we try it on toast rather then a plain slice of bread. Delicious. (I'm really glad that he likes it as the recipe makes quite a bit and it will certainly make its way on to the lunch menu this week.)
What's your favourite sandwich filling?
