The NYC "theme" is Summer & Mexican inspired... I'm serving up a mix of new recipes (from my upcoming cookboook) and old recipes (from the e-cookbooks).

Speaking of e-books, they'll be discontinued in one week! The cupcakes I'm making tonight -- Mojito Cupcakes!!! are one of many recipes that are not in my upcoming cookbook! Buy the e-books now before those recipes are gone forever! (& yes, the 'cakes are whole-wheat, fat-free & a bit alcoholic!)

In Episode 4 of "Healthy Options with the Happy Herbivore" Lindsay whips up her famous mock tuna salad! Watch how fast you can make this delicious and super healthy alternative at home!

Recipe:"Tuna" Salad


Who knew mashed up chickpeas could taste just like tuna? It's amazing how this sandwich tastes like the real thing.. except with out the fish, mercury, cholesterol and preservatives... It's the healthiest and tastiest TuNo around!



In a large mixing bowl, mash chickpeas with a fork until coarse and no whole beans are left. Alternatively, pulse beans in a food processor a few times -- careful not to puree, and transfer to a mixing bowl. Shred celery with a cheese grater or pulse a few times in a food processor. Transfer to the mixing bowl and add remaining ingredients, stirring to combine. Add more vegan mayo and/or kelp as necessary or desired and black pepper to taste.

Chef's Notes: One small dill pickle may be shredded or minced and used in place of the relish. You can also add a light squeeze of lemon juice for added flavor.
