This recipe is sesame-free, nut-free, dairy-free, high-fiber, and high-protein.


- 1/3 cup mayonnaise

- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

- 1 tablespoon Sriracha

- 1 1/2 teaspoons grated garlic

- 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice

- 1/4 teaspoon salt

- 1/8 teaspoon ground pepper

- 1 (15.5-ounce) can no-salt-added chickpeas, drained

- 2 (5-ounce) cans solid white tuna in water, drained

- 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion

- 8 slices whole-wheat bread

- 4 leaves green-leaf lettuce


1. Whisk mayonnaise, chives, Sriracha, garlic, lemon juice, salt, and pepper together in a small bowl.


2. Place chickpeas in a medium bowl. Use a fork to press and roughly smash some of the chickpeas. It's okay if some remain whole.

3. Add tuna to the chickpeas and stir to combine, using the fork to flake the tuna.

4. Add the mayonnaise mixture and onion to the bowl and stir until well combined.

5. Spread the mixture evenly over 4 bread slices (about 1/2 cup each).

6. Top each slice with 1 lettuce leaf and cover with the remaining bread slices.
