Mock Tuna Sandwiches

2 cups cooked garbanzo beans -- or one 19-ounce can, drained
1 stalk celery -- finely chopped
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup finely chopped green onions
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup soybean mayonnaise
8 slices whole wheat bread

Place the beans in a food processor and process until coarsely chopped or mash with a bean masher. Don't over process to a smooth consistency.

Place in a bowl and add the remaining ingredients. Mix well. Chill at least 1 hour to blend the flavors.

Servings: makes 2 cups

Recipe Hint: Add 2 tablespoons of pickle relish to this spread to jazz it up. We like this spread on crackers or toasted fat-free crumpets.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
