Quick Vegan Recipe: Vegan Mock Ham Salad

Vegan Mock Ham Salad

Vegan Mock Ham Salad

I call this one Mock Ham because of the pinkish tinge created by the red bell peppers and purple carrot.

It can be difficult and down right sad to be a vegan at lunchtime, there are few vegan delicatessens to frequent when you need to nosh. My mock salads have become a staple in my eating and really are versatile and quick.
I own a Ninja food processor and have no idea how to use half of the attachments, but I love the food processor part.

As always most of my ingredients come from Trader Joe’s and are organic, a few come from Whole Foods.

 

 

  • 1 can of garbanzo beans
  •  1/2 red bell pepper sliced
  •  1 purple carrot cut in rounds
  •  2 tablespoons of “vegan” mayo (or you can use silken tofu)
  • 1/3 cup of natural pickle relish
  • 1 tablespoon of Penzey’s Sweet Curry (or dijon mustard)

Here’s the quick and simple – chuck it all in the food processor and pulse a few times until it reaches a chunky but creamy consistency. Be careful, over processing results in a hummus like spread which is also good as a dip! I slather this on bread with tomato and spinach, or place a top some power greens for a salad (sometimes I lightly dress the greens with balsamic vinaigrette).

Makes 3 servings. This comes in at approximately 150 calories per serving.
