Not Tuna Lettuce Cups

A tasty sandwich filler or appetiser which can be quickly made. Dulse is a type of seaweed that is high in iodine and manganese and provides the ‘fishy’ flavour in this dish. Use less if you prefer.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes


  • 1 tin chickpeas, drained
  • 1 red onion, chopped into small pieces
  • 1-2 tbsp dulse flakes
  • 1/4-1/2 cup egg free mayonnaise (see here for my recipe
  • 1/4 cup pepitas
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp lemon juice


  • Place chickpeas in a blender and process until broken down (or mash by hand!)
  • Place pepitas and sunflower seeds in blender and process until fine crumbs
  • Place chickpeas and seed mixture into large bowl and add the red onion and dulse flakes to taste
  • Mix together and add mayonnaise
  • Add as much mayonnaise for the consistency that you require
  • Add dijon mustard to taste
  • Finally add 1tsp lemon juice
  • Place in fridge to set or can serve immediately


Serve on fresh lettuce leaves or in bread for a tasty sandwich. Also great on jacket potatoes!
I like 2 tbsp dulse flakes which gives it a stronger fish type flavour
