Vegan Chilli Taiyo (canned tuna in chili oil)

Vegan Chilli Taiyo

Okay, so I've never had Chilli Taiyo, and I can't find an ingredent list of it, but what it seems to be is canned tuna flakes packed in chili oil.  This is what I would imagine a good vegan version would be.  Light on the oil for preference.

  • 1 can chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 2 tsp reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp onion flakes
  • 1 tsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 tsp kelp flakes
  • 1/4 tsp dulse powder (or another 1/4 kelp)
  • 1 tsp chili oil
  1. Add chickpeas. soy sauce, lemon, onion flakes, nooch, and kelp/dulse to a small food processor.  Chop a few times until the chickpeas are flaked, and the spices are mixed well. 

  2. Transfer to a mixing bowl and add the chili oil.  Mine was very spicy, and I don't like a lot of oil in my foods, one tsp was enough.
